I am trying to install SQL Server 2008 on Server 2008 both x64 as the first node of a failover cluster. It passes alll of the prerquisite checks but then fails on install with this message:
The following error has occurred:

Error writing to file: Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.dll.   Verify that you have access to that directory.

I can't seem to find anything about this anywhere.

Attached is the dump file. I am about to format and reinstall everything, but I am afraid that my results won't change.

Each install has its own log...  Posting that (or at least the bottom part where the error is) would be helpful (is that what you meant by dump file?)
Was the install from an ISO image or a real CD/DVD?   I'd make sure that the CD/DVD is clean and free of smudges
