Unable to install MDAC 2.8 on W2K



I have a Windows 2000 Professional workstation, and I am unable to install
MDAC 2.8 on it...It just starts to install but then reports 'setup has
encountered an error and installation was unsuccessul'...I did some research
on the 'dasetup.log' error code, and some articles recommend deleting the
registry key:

'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\ExceptionComponents'

and reinstall the MDAC again...Just wanted to know if there are any other
options before I try this...Below is the 'dasetup.log':
