Default Battlefield Vietnam won't Install!

I had uninstalled this 3 CD game a few months back. Recently, I tried to install it. I come to find out that it will not install. It does not give me the option to install it, just uninstall. I run the uninstall and it goes through the checks, and it says uninstall successful. Well, it wasn't because I tried it again and yet the same thing.

I went into C:/Program Files/EA Games/Battlefield Vietnam and deleted the Battlefield Vietnam. (The only other file in the EA Games folder is C&C Generals) After I deleted the game directory folder, I went into my Registry under:
- Regedit
- HKEY Local Machine
- Software
- EA Games
- Battlefield Vietnam

I had deleted that, went back into the installer for Battlefield Vietnam, and it still would not let me install. What can I do?

Did you look for other registry entries for it, like under HKEY Current User?
