Sounds like you are trying to run setup from a directory on your hard drive rather than the original installation media.

The quickest resolution is to burn the directory to a CDROM, and run the setup file from there.

Failing that, use the SUBST command to map a drive letter to the directory in question, ensuring that your setup program is in the root. Then run setup from the drive lettter.

See this link for information on SUBST:
