Windows XP BSOD MiniDump File Analysis

I have been trying all morning to download and install the Microsoft Windows Debugging tools so that I can analyze a raw minidump file from a client's Windows XP SP3 workstation.  I need to know if this is a driver/windows issue or if there is a brewing hardware problem.  This client has been experiencing increasing instances of the BSOD.  Since my download and install fromt he Microsoft website of the debugging tools keeps failing and sending me into an eternal loop of cross-referencing help articles that are of no assistance, I was wondering if anyone knew of a better/different way to read these dump files.  Barring that, is anyone willing to have me upload the file and run the analysis on it and give it back?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much!  The first link worked perfectly and allowed me to change the file location of the dump file that I had saved on my usb stick from the XP machine.  Perfect Tool!
