Im installing SQL Server 2k, and im running into a problem installing it. Everything goes well, until the end, and it freezes at...

"setup is starting server and installing your chosen configuration"

It then freezes, and does nothing at this point. I have tried re-installing. I have tried deleting the registry items, and reinstalling. Nothing, still freezes. Im starting to go nuts figuring this out, so hopefully you can help.

This is what its showing in errorlog.

I am using windows XP Professional, by the way. And it's a dedicated server im using from someone.

(By the way, I'm connecting to the dedicated server via Remote Desktop by windows. I HEARD that you cannot install SQL Server 2000 using Remote Desktop, but i just can't believe this!)
