Hm, that's very strange. I have XP, and it runs flawlessly.
You might have a bad disk, but that's just grasping at nothing. If you have access to another XP Computer, try the same disks there and see if the result is the same. If it is, then odds are the disk is bad. Otherwise, I don't know. You may also try asking this question in the Yoda's Swamp board. It gets more traffic there than here and someone might have better suggestions than I can give.
Lemme know how it goes.
And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.
