you can removing all installed frameworks and any components installed with them and uninstall VS.net 2005 using this tool
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/support/uninstall/default.aspx
or if you want to try to manually install SQL Express  from
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/support/install/

Thanks. I reinstalled manually. I was trying to install to a compressed file which is what the error was about. I uncompressed and voila.

You are most welcome Seb :-) Glad it worked for you.
It was torture for me to install VS.Net just because I didnt read the readme file included in the CD :-(

Have fun with VS.Net 2005
