Win XP reboots when installing programs

I know that it might have been covered somewhere else but I am still searching...

Windows XP PRO reboots randomly when trying to install software. My drivers are up to date, I am using an Athlon XP 2000+, 400W Codegen PSU, Epox KT333 mobo, 512+256MB memory and a 40GB HDD. Video card is Radeon 8500DV AIW. Any clue of what might have happened. FYI, occurs only during installation. Just had a burn-in period of 8 hours without crash.
