Replacing thermostat need a little help


Hi
I am replacing my old (non-programmable) thermostat for the first time. Here is a picture of the wires http://oi49.tinypic.com/el4jg4.jpg. (notice the blue wire is in the RH spot.)
This is the new (programmable) honeywell RTHL2310/RTHL221 thermostat http://oi45.tinypic.com/28l9t38.jpg
I am not sure where to put the blue (RH) wire in the new thermostat.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Edit: Now I am having problems trying to program the day of the week for the system.
Instructions say:
1. Press the SET button then press ^ or v to set the clock time. (Works for the clock)
2. Press the SET button, then press ^ or v to select the day of the week. (The problem here is, when the clock is on the correct time I press SET again and it goes to scheduling the Time and Temperature for the schedule(with no day selected therefore I can't program it past a day as it currently is), it never gives me an option to set the day of the week.
3. Press RUN to save & exit.

I have tried holding the SET button and various other things, but nothing has gotten me to a way to set the day.
If needed I can post a picture of the front of the thermostat.
