kbdus.dll error in win xp installation

  kumar1 04:49 11 Nov 2005

i have a P-4 1.8 GHZ system with 40 GB HDD and 256 MB DDRRAM memory.
i have win 98 SE on drive c and had win xp pro with SP 2 on drive d.
when xp crashed, i tried to reinstal from CD but getting an error "unable to load kbdus.dll file (keyboard layout file). set up will now quit".
the ms knowledgebase says that the error pertains to windows 2000 installation.
but i have not upgraded from 2000. i am using the same keyboard for the last two years and i have had several cases of xp reinstallation in the past and had no such problems.
please tell me what to do.

My first sugestion (and Ive done this myself) is clean the cd.
