    Compatibility mode to Windows 95 always works for me in issues like this.

    Run the installer for the game in compatabiliy mode like pick Xp SP2 or somthing.
    Right click the install.exe and select properties then compatability and from there you should be ok.

    PVT you are a fast one!Oh by the way good feed back!

    ya know, i tried cpt mode but nada.. but for some reason I installed it to flashdrive and it worked.

    man this game is old school.. brings back memories. now time to setup the pc vs dreamcast server and see if there is any life on mars.

    You know about Quake Live right? Loads of fun, and you don't have to mess with anything (except installing a plugin and create an account).
