start DIP brings down PDE and DBS

Hi,
I am trying to install teradata for the first time (on Windows 2k Server), and I am stuck at this last point where I am supposed to run DIP.
When I choose DIP from multitool, it gives timeout error. When I run from DBW-Supvr window, and choose DIPALL as the option,
PDE and DBS go down ( green-up arrows in multitool change to red-down).
I have tried re-boots, fresh re-installs, but nothing seems to change.

Any clues?

You've probably hit the infamous Windows DEP problem. If so, you're getting an access violation when Teradata attempts to execute some generated machine code.

You need to disable a Microsoft Windows feature that disallows the execution of machine instructions in a data segment. Read the gory details here:

Edit c:\boot.ini, look for "/noexecute=" and change the parameter value after "=" to "alwaysoff". The file should like something like this:

[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=alwaysoff /fastdetect
