Any other Stop messages?

BSOD messages?

Off the top of my head, I would say an issue between the hard disk controller drivers and XP, but that is strictly a guess till I get more information.

I let the installation finish and it took about 8 hours or so. Then the PC wouldn't boot, or start in safe mode. I booted from the CD and this....

"The file dmio.sys is corrupted"

Tried to boot from the CD again, and received a blue screen. I'm at a loss.

More weird stuff. Seems I get a new error every time I try to boot from the Win XP CD. - Blue screen, indicating file: setupdd.sys - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA ... setupdd.sys - address F77CB5A1 AT F7799000, DATESTAMP 3D6DD67F.

Anyone have any idea what all this means??

Is that a 0X50 error? I would be highly suspicious of the RAM if it is. In addition, you could need some new drivers for the motherboard or IDE controllers which can result in that error.

Were any disks provided with the system for the motherboard, hard disks, video cards, etc.?

Yep... the RAM was the issue, I sorted it out yesterday. I tried turning of the MOBO overclocking and everthing works fine now. It wasn't a problem for the last couple of years but suddenly now the RAM decided it didn't like it. Weird.
