Problem with the microsoft document explorer

I’m new working with SQL Server and I have the project to implement a sql cluster. As recommended in one of your articles I install the sql server book online to get information about ms sql server. I get from the Internet the version from february 2007 and I installed the new Windows Installer (version 3.1) and the .NET Framework (version 2) that are necessary for the installation. The installation runs whitout errors. But if I start the programm I get following message "Microsoft document explorer cannot be shown because the specified help collection ‘ms-help://MS.SQLCC.V9’ is invalid. I started the installation programm again and select the option repair, after it I get the same error message. Could somebody help me. Thanks in advance
Thanks MohammedU. for the reply, but the SQL Server is not installed in the computer, there is only the BOL installed. Josep Lluis Cardona
Did you complete the following requirements…. System Requirements

Microsoft .NET Framework: The Help viewer used by Books Online requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0. Download one of the following versions of the .NET Framework 2.0:

Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 or later Windows Installer: Windows Installer 3.0 is required to install SQL Server 2005 Books Online. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and Windows XP Service Pack 2 both include Windows Installer 3.0. For all other operating systems, you must first download and install Windows Installer 3.0.
