    Win 2k!! Hmm. The downloads section show an XP installer. They say it is 2k compatable, but you will need a 3D card with recent drivers.

    Just cause I stay behind the curve in OSes doesn't mean I'm behind in everything.

    Current machine is AMD 3200 64 bit with Radeon 256MB 1300 graphics card :P

    and it's giving the same wierd error on my wife's XP machine

    ... the NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction ...

    but she only has a 1G of RAM and an Radeon 9250 :P

    Maybe the download's corrupted ???

    regards
    Simon
