    this is my first time building a pentium 4 system, i have built 6 socket a (athlon) systems.
    compared to a socket a heatsink, how easy/hard is a pentium 4 heatsink and fan to install?

    really easy if you use the stock design, just shove em into place (click click) and pull the levers over to lock it :)

    No problems. The mobo may look a bit bent afterwards, but don't worry. ;) Therefore it's a good idea to put the CPU and HSF on before you mount the mobo in the case IMHO.
