    The install is very straight forward provided all the pre-reqs are in place. You specify the DC afterward by simply typing in its machine name. Is this a farm install or stand alone? Is SQL server already installed and ready?

    You might need to dive into an install and post back if you have any issues.
    If the step by step from Microsoft doesn't work then we may be able to help on specific questions

    I only have one bit of advice for you.  DO NOT CHOOSE BASIC when running the installer!!!!!  Choose to do a Farm install.

    Farm means spreading services across more than one server eg sharepoint on server A and SQL on server B
    Unless you are testing, developing or serving a very small number of people then I also don't recommend the stand alone option.
    Install SQL Server 2008 or R2 on a dedicated server then install SP on another dedicated server. During the install you will be asked to specify the SQL Server and the install will handle DB creation and connections
