    I have Quake II, and I want to install it on my XP machine, since I'm feeling a bit nostalgic. I tried to install it, and I got the error "This version of Quake II will not install on this language version of win95/NT"

    I was doing some research, and I found that if I install it on a win 98 machine, and just copy the files over to my xp machine, it should work, but the problem is, I don't have a 98 machine, and I don't know anyone with a 98 machine..

    Is there a way I can install this game on win xp?

    I'm not quite sure if that'll work...I have Quake II installed on my Windows XP and running with no problems.

    I have an older version of the game. I tried going into the properties and running it for win 95, and 98 compatability, still wouldn't install....
