error upgrading SQL 2000 to SQL 2005

Hello all,
I am trying to upgrade SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 on a Windows 2000
Terminal Server SP4 but it errors out.


Here is a portion of the summary.txt file:


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Machine : SXDBA20
Product : Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Books Online (English)
Product Version : 9.00.1399.06
Install : Failed
Log File : C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup
Bootstrap\LOG\Files\SQLSetup0011_SXDBA20_BOL_1.log
Error Number : 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What is 'Error Number :3'? I see this in all the failed components.


The log itself, in this case for Books OnLine, doesn't give me anything
useful for debugging.


All the pre-reqs have been installed on this server, such as, IE 6.0
SP1, Windows Installer 3.1, etc...


Thanks ,
Joe
