Why can't I complete the install for Project 2000?

I have a Win2k environment; I am installing Project 2000 on 12 machines in a training center (network). The install goes smoothly until about 3/4's the way through and it stops...at which time it says you must give a user name and password to connect to an apps folder on a machine on the network (that I do have permissions to access), and that it needed to get Windows files from this folder. It won't allow me to browse so I type in my credential's, but no go...I do have administrative privileges on the local machine. What is up with that?
This question was answered by expert Ed Tittle:

You also need admin privileges on the system where the share exists, and you will probably need to provide a UNC...

name for the directory spec where those files reside. My advice would be to provide the administrator account information for the machine where the apps folder is located, and see what happens next. If that doesn't work, you may want to copy those files to a local directory on the machine where the install is located (or to a share over which you do have administrative control). Good luck with your situation. Sounds frustrating!
