So i was trying to install a hallmark 2008 program for my aunt. During the installation it says that microsoft .net framwork 3.0 needs to be installed. When it tries to do this the installation of it fails. The computer does not have .net framework 2.0 installed either. I tried to install this and it failed also. Any one got any ideas as to what is going on? She has a dell computer (kinda old and only has about 6 gig of free space left on the HD). and is running XP.

Net Framework 3.0 definitely requires Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2).

Net Framework 2.0 I'm less sure about, but on the download page it refers only to XP as "Windows XP SP2":

since you say it's old computer it may therefore not have SP2 installed. If that's so, it may be the reason why NF won't install on it.

Read the documentation for Hallmark 2008. It should say which version of NF it requires. It may run with NF 1.1 (which is compatible with all versions of XP). You can get NF 1.1 here:

If this installs successfully (and if Hallmark 2008 runs okay with it) you should also install this 'service pack' for it which fixes some problems users found in the original version:

Bear in mind that, unlike most other software updates or 'newer' versions, it's possible have several different versions of Net Framework installed side by side. When you install a newer version the older version is automatically preserved intact. This is because different applications may require different versions of Net Framework in order to run properly.
