It took me less than an hour to load WDSc v5.1 on my 2.4Ghz Dell (768MB RAM). I think you went wrong by clicking OK/Next. When I installed, when it told me to uninstall the previous version, I exited the WDSc installation program and did a START -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, then unstalled the previous version. After the previous version was uninstalled, I rebooted my machine, then reinserted the CD to install the new version. I had no problems, and after 4 CDs, was finished in less than an hour.
