I think you mean i386
i386 is the windows folder for install.
Causes could be one of or combination of the following, dirty or scratched CD, bad memory, HD has corrupt sectors and can't be written to, bad partition table, or bad HD in general.
You could make sure the install CD is clean and try again.
