Trouble Installing Network Adapters

I've been pounding on this one for 2 days with no luck at all.  I'm trying to install a wireless adapter into an HP computer running WinXP Pro and every time the installation fails with a "system cannot find the file specified" message.  I've so far tried this with 3 different adapters; WMP11v4, WMP54G, and even a WUSB11 v2.6.  I've went through the registry and removed all traces of Linksys each time before installing the next adapter. I tried installing drivers BEFORE installing the cards and still no luck.  I tried doing the Winsock fix, I even did a repair installation of XP, no help.  Has anyone had this problem before and solved it?  The only other option I see is to reformat and reinstall XP, but I really don't want to do that since this isn't my machine...
