Burn a DVD or make a USB boot able flash disk.
Do a Clean install deleting all partitions on disk.

I have a 32-bit computer. The hdd in the computer I want to install to is blank, and has been allocated and made Primary.

When you do a Clean install you delete all partitions than create a new. It will create the MS reserved (100M) and a big NTFS.
Install Windows on the big NTFS.

Use the same you have for the OEM disk.

Since they are sending me a replacement dvd, I would feel very uncomfertable using the license key from the first dvd on this file. But thanks for your help. I'm going to go ahead and mark this resolved.

I hope the new dvd doesn't have the same problem. If it does, I'll just ask them for my money back and ship them back the two dvds.

Somewhat of an update: they took off the license key for the second dvd.

Before I started again, I opened up the desktop case, took out all cards, and blew on them to get dust off, along with the motherboard connectors. I only had a video card and two ram DIMMS. No spots for anything else.

It loads and I get 'Windows is Starting'. After 45 minutes, I didn't have time to wait, but I will on Thursday, so I shut the computer off. At least it didn't bsod this time.

Apparently I have a hard ware problem. Sometimes when I boot; right after the Del for Bios and F12 for boot manager' message appears I hear 3 short beeps. Or 3 short beeps and 1 slightly longer beeps. Or no beeps.

Next week I'll take it apart and use canned air to clean it out and try again.

Cmos battery was dead. No time to work on the computer, I have replaced the battery, until Saturday evening or Monday. I have a small tree decoration that uses two cr2032 batteries. I swapped the one fomr the desktop to the decoration, the lgihts cwouldn't come on. Swapped the battery out, lights came on.

The Install worked just fine this time. It was a combo of the first dvd having an error in one file in the Wnidows folder, and the cmos battery being mostly dead

Everything is fine now.

Thanks for your help.
