Did you run this before you installed Win 7 ?

#1 above first before even purchasing!
The problem with attempting to install Windows 7 (or even Vista) on older hardware is that there are no drivers available for your hardware that are compatible with the operating system. Even if you can manage to get it to run with some sort of patch together, it will be very slow on the older hardware. Go back to XP for this hardware and wait for Windows 7 until you can replace the hardware completely with a new system (bought or scratch built) with modern components.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Did you install all new Windows 7 drivers for all of your hardware? Windows install just installs generic video drivers to allow you to boot up, it is then up to you to install the correct drivers for your hardware. You should have downloaded these (step 2 just after verifying compatibility on windows 7 site) from the system manufacturer's site if this is a stock machine from a major manufacturer, or from the individual hardware manufacturer's sites if custom (all stock parts from system mfg if customized and added parts form component mfg) before beginning to install.
It does not matter as much 'older' as 'available compatible drivers', which ususally means newer.
Also the reason we are recommending going back to XP is that Windows 7 NEEDS more resources than your OLD Pentium 4 system can provide. Faster MultiCore Processor, More AND Faster memory, Faster wider system Bus, DVD Drive (you apparently have), Chipset support, Advanced Video support, and more. IF it runs, it will run slow.... Sorry.
