SQL Server 2000 cluster installation fails

Hi All,

I tried to install a named instance of SQL 2000 on Windows 2003 SP2. But it failed. The error it returned while the install is in progress is:

An error occurred attempting to read properties for the sql server fulltext resource. The specified module could not be found

FYI... this is a 2 node cluster (the nodes are: node1 and node2). I attempted the install on Node1.

Attached is the sqlstp.log files from both the nodes. Please let me know if you need any further information.
sqlstp-log-node1.txt
sqlstp-log-node2.txt

Thanks for the links EugeneZ and VMontalvao. I had to uninstall and then remove the registry keys related to MSSEARCH/ full-text. I had to delete the registry keys as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290991. The cluster install went well after that.
