  NT4 cannot accept IE greater that 5.5.  You can get IE5.5 or less from here

You should use IE5.5 SP2, because it the lastest.  You can use earlier versions.

I keep recieving the message " a previous installation program was never completed. You will need to restart your computer to complete the installation before running Internet Explorer setup. Setup will now close" I have rebooted the server. The last thing i installed was MS KB824146 patch.

The error message comes from your incomplete install of IE6. Remove the old IE6 setup files from C:\ or C:\Windows or C:\Winnt.  Also, remove the startup shortcut in Start > Programs > Startup
