Microsoft SQL Server Native Client -- Error 1706

I am trying to install MS SQL 2005 Server on Vista Home Premium-32 Bit. It keeps giving this error.

Microsoft SQL Server Native Client -- Error 1706. An installation package for the product Microsoft SQL Server Native Client cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package 'sqlncli.msi'.

I have tried two different installation CDs without luck. Please advise. Thanks.
