Those are the steps that I have gotten to so far, but when it says "Copying Files" before getting to the GUI XP install part, it copies some files and then stops copying them at all.
The old OS was not acting up as far as I know. He just got this computer from his work. He wanted me to wipe it completely and reinstall Windows. Wait a sec. He also wanted me to put in new RAM, and that may be the problem. I'll try without the new RAM in it and see if it works then.
Also, Thanks for the responses! It is kind of late here right now so I will probably respond tomorrow. Thanks again!
