installing xp but get "ams" file needed

  Ballie 11:13 20 Jan 2005

I am istalling win xp (oem) on a system built from all my old pc bits, I have got to the "pepering installation" bit and a box has poped up saying something like "win xp needs file ams insert win-xp sp2 disc" (I am 99% sure it said ams) anyway I already had the disc in the drive it said get file from location the opptions where A: or D: D:is the cd drive it showed D:and some numbers ie where the file was I cliked ok but nothing would happen so after a few minutes I clicked cancel it then said that the user was terminating the set up and rebooted it then went back to pepering istallation and all seemed ok ie no more asking for files it has now completed the install and it seems to be working ok. Should I worry about this ? can anyone tell me what "ams" file is?

Thanks guys
(ps thanks to TomJerry for all his recent help)
