O/S: Windows XP Home (with Service Pack 2)
Downloaded python-2.4.msi from python.org (10,632KB). When I double
click on the file from Windows Explorer, the installation process
presents the window in which I am prompted to either install for all
users (the default) or install for just me. I selected the defaulted
value. Installation process presents a window in which the user may
select the directory for python 2.4 files. I selected the default
value of the Python24 folder. After clicking Next, the process
presents a window with the message, "Python 2.4 installer ended
prematurely. Python 2.4 ended prematurely because of an error. Your
system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time,
please run the installation again."

My question is this: how do I determine what the error was that caused
the installation process to end prematurely?

I have the same problem and don't know what's happening, but
ActivePython worked for me. Get it here:

Please run

msiexec /i python-2.4.msi /l*v python.log

and post the resulting python.log as a bug report on
sf.net/projects/python.

In most such cases, upgrading VisualBasic helped, see
