Double check all connections are clean & tight. You need to get a voltmeter and have the voltage tested at battery with engine off & running. Drive it to the Napa shop you bought the alternator from if necessary, they should perform test free of charge, as the possibility of a faulty one is not out of the question, provided all is connected properly. Did you check that a main fuse for alternator wasn't blown in Uunderhood power distribution box?

It sounds like you have a major compent shorted out somewhere. Some thing is causing a discharge. Therefore your altenator is not responding and the car is draining the battery. Is the circuit between the altenator and the battery broken?? Also, you may need to check all the chassis grounds. Sometimes all your problems can stem from just a bad ground.

I was running into this problem with my 97 5.2l Dakota and after some searching I found the the "Fuse Link" between the Alternator and the Battery was blow. Found a suitable "Fuse Link" at a local Auto parts store for about $5.
