Yesterday, I posted a description of a registry permission bug that was preventing the .NET Framework 2.0 from installing in certain circumstances. This bug has been fixed, but it still affects all of the publicly available versions of the .NET Framework 2.0. If you need to install a build of the .NET Framework 2.0 that still has this bug, you can use the following steps to manually patch the .NET Framework 2.0 MSI to workaround this bug.
Also note that if you are trying to install the .NET 2.0 beta 2 build you can download a version that already has this patch applied, you can download it from here.
