DL140 2003 Installation Halts

I have having issues installing Windows 2003 Server on a DL 140. I have read several threads with issues relating to this installation and created an CD using NLite with the correct LSI drivers for the hard driver controlled. I can actually get a partition created and get to the point where the system starts to format the drive. It acts like it is trying for format the drive and then gives the following error.

Setup cannot format the partition.

Your computer may not have enough memory to perform this operation, or your Windows CD-Rom may contain some corrupted files.

Setup will then not continue. The machine has 2GB of memory and I have tried multiple CD setups to get past this error to no avail. Can anyone help?
