I'm having this exact same problem on a brand new Dell Dimension 2400.

PnP works fine. It sees that there is a USB network adapter being
plugged in. It even sees the software on the CD, and copies the driver
file (or so it appears). I get the Microsoft warning message about
potential problems (continue anyway), and after all that, it says there
is a problem installing the device, and that the specified file could
not be found.

Safe mode uninstallation did not work. Same problem next time the
hardware is found.

Help!

Install the drivers that came with the USB network adapter! Don't try to use
the Windows generic drivers.
