As I recall, the hydrogen molecule (and maybe also the hydrogen molecular ion) problems are solved in the quantum mechanics book by Pauling and Wilson.

Excited states of hydrogen molecule, page 353
Hydrogen molecule ion, page 327

As an aside, the best method (as in - most accurate for the computational complexity) is the now seldom-seen Hylleraas variational approach (applied to helium in 1929), which works for two electrons but not that well for many more. The method was used to calculate hydrogen http://scitation.aip.org/getabs/servlet/GetabsServlet?prog=normal&id=JCPSA6000001000012000825000001&idtype=cvips&gifs=yes" [Broken], with a result that was far better than perturbatory calculations could do at that time.

Thanks! I just borrowed that book and I will read it. I'll try to understand the book. I will post some questions just in case I cant understand some parts of it. =) Thanks again. Just in case you have any other info about the topic, please feel free to post it because it would really be a great help. =)
