    Now running Win XP Pro, and HoW won't install on XP Pro.
    Is XP's decision final, or is there some way I can install and run this fun game, without having to run win98SE as a dual boot.
    Only have a 20GB HDD fully partition with NTFS and over half of my space is taken up with apps already........not really any room to run 98SE as well.
    Anyone any ideas ??
    Thanks very much.

    Did you try running the game in 98 compatability mode?

    Right click on the file and select compatability...then check the windows 98 box....and select 256 color mode etc as required

    EDIT:


    You might also try using VDMSOUND . solves a lot of problems running older games in xp/2000

    Very many thanks Jtoast,
    Managed in the end to use the 'compat. mode' and the game installed, and was able to play the game. However, the control keys (arrows) did not work in the menu, so game only half worked...:(
    I will try out that proggy that you gave me the link to. Very many thanks for your efforts..............appreciated.
    Cheers.
