Hi its me again, dont think my post on this one completed as i was kicked off
line, I started to install XP and got to this point :

Setup is starting windows

The following shows the existing partitions and unpartitions space

A problem has been detected

Tech Information:

***Stop 0x0000008E(0x0000005,0xF84CCED5,0xF80D87D0,0x00000000)

***Setupdd.sys-Address F84CCED5 base at F84A2000,Datestamp 3b7d8507

Does this mean my hard drive is bad ?

All help is appreciated

Ed, according to this it's more likely your Ram.

Ed, go into the Bios and select Default Settings. Make sure that
antivirus is disable in Bios. Also go to the hard drive manufacturers
website and download a DOS Diagnostic Utility.

Rich, I went into BIOS and did what you suggested, but I couldnt find a DOS
Diagnostic utility for Maxtor hard drive, also I wouldnt be able to down load
it on that computer because I cant load windows. Do you think its my hard
drive thats bad or could both memory chips be bad ? Thanks for you help and
patience.
