Not a problem with XP Home specifically, but rather with the supplier
installer routine - I had the same issues with XP Pro.  It appears that
the virtual memory check in the installer interprets large values of
free disk space/VM as Negative values. 

Another work-around is to temporarily set the VM down to a small figure
(like 256 MB) and then the autorun installer will happily proceed
'normally'  Don't forget to reset the value back to your standard
setting.  Note that this requires a reboot after changing the value, so
just running setup.exe directly is both easier and quicker, but this is
another option.
