Which SQL2K Merge Modules do I use ...

I want to be able to create a database on a remote SQL Server 2000 during my installation.  I use SQL-DMO and a VBScript deferred CA.  The script works fine on a Win2K Server with SQL 2000 installed.
What I would like to know is which merge modules I have to distribute from the SQL2K CD to be able to connect to a remote database using SQL DMO?  Right now I use DMO.MSM, DMO_RES.MSM, CONNECT.MSM, SQLBASE.MSM.  My IE version - or more acurately shdocvw.dll file version - is 5.0.3214.2000, which should be sufficient.  Still I keep getting the UI screen that my app's installation was interrupted.  BTW (OT), where is the log of my installation written?

Any clues as to why would be nice.

Configuration: W2KServer with SP1, US English(1033), all critical updates installed using Windows Update.

P.S. I already have the latest hotfix for the problem discussed in Q274244.  I also cleared up the problem regarding 'Merge Modules Dependencies Can't Be Resolved'.

I must state one thing: I do not have a SQL Server 2K running on the PC I use to build my solution.  I do have client connectivity and SQL DMO support...

I finally had the common sense to enable the logging option, and I came about something very interesting:

I think what's in bold is causing the problem...
