There's a lot of different numbered Suwin error's and they are not all easily fixed.
"Suwin caused an illegal instruction in setupx.dll"
"SU0168 Error During Installation"
And like error messages.
The best method I've came accross is as follows:
1st. The problem is not with the PIO mode on the HDD or other Bios selections.
You need to disable your internal cache. If you want you can disable your external cache and startup CPU speed at low if running a 586 or 686 chip etc..
The SUWIN error happens when it tries to verify that the memory range it wants to use is free.
Well if you have your internal cache enable these memory ranges are protected and windows cannot use them for the install.
You THEN enable cache after the install. This should fix your problems.
