How do I install a Full version of SQL Server 2005 SP3 on a Windows 2008 Server Standard

I have been wanting to put the full series of service packs on a SQL Server 2005 install. I have not updated it to SP2 or SP3. I have it on a Windows Server 2008 64 bit Standard install with a copy of SQL Server 2008 no service packs installed.

I am trying to get both SQL installs on there. It is possible I have already checked that out. However I have not been able to get the full copy of SQL Server 2005 on there and wanted to get that done. Here is what is on the Server now. see image.

The second image shows the error I have been getting and I have not been able to update this on this machine. Does anyone know how to get this installed.? Any support is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

No I want both full installs for both SQLs using named instances nothing default. The default instance has not been used.

I have not been able to uninstall SQL 2008 and I have not been able to get2005 installed fully. I thought I could at least get a full install of 2005 SP3 then try again on installing named instances of SQL 2008.

How do I add a second IP to this system....?

This is what failed when I tried to install SQL Server 2008 on my 11th attempt.
Any thoughts on what is happening. Is there any sure way to remove. I would think there would be an absolute way to do this without having to go outside the scope of Microsoft.

I am in the Administrator Group with Full Control. I am not the Administrator.
I am going to try this next. I am trying to get the actual Administrators login access. I am not convinced this is the case. But I am open to trying. Any thoughts on why this refuses to uninstall for me an administrator........?
