Cabinet file 'SqlBol.cab' error on 2005 install

We have a particular desktop that is getting the following error during the  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 setup/install with Windows XP.
The cabinet file 'SqlBol.cab' required for this installation is corrupt and cannot be used. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package.
The following is also true
The .net frameworks 1.1 2.0 3.0 3.5 has been installed
When loading the software, we are an  admin to the box
The CD we are loading from was created by ISO but has worked on previous machines with no difficulty.
This is a desktop and not vitual machine.
We are using the SQL server development edition and only installing workstation components.

try deselecting the books online option from the install options and see if sql installs ok now
