Windows 2000 Server Installation Error

By weigm ·
I am trying to install Windows 2000 server on a Dell Poweredge 2950. I use the Installation and Server Management CD to set up the installation. After copying all of the files needed from that CD and the Windows 2000 Server CD, the system reboots and I get a lsass.exe - Application Error. It says "The instruction at "0x77fe9ba2" referenced memory at "0x58544850". The memory could not be written. Click OK to terminate the program. I click OK and then it gets as far as asking me to enter my name and the company name. After clicking OK on that screen, I get a SetupErr.log screen, that says Error: Setup Encountered an error while trying to set system security.
The specific module could not be found.
Error: Setup encountered an error while trying to set system security. The network request is not supported.

Error: Setup was unable to set the account domain SID because of the following error. LsaOpenPolicy returned stats c0020017.
Fatal Error: The security subsystem could not be initialized.

Can anyone give me some ideas about what is the problem and how I would go about fixing it? Thanks!

I was finally able to find a website where it described how to slipstream SP4 onto a Windows 2000 Server CD. After doing that, the install went fine. Website is Sometimes I can get to this site and other times I can't, so I'm not sure if you'll be able to get to it, but the directions do work.
