Also, win98/me has a memory issue of crapping out with a "not enough memory" error when running on a pc with more than 512 megs of ram. For some people, going back to win98/me might not be a solution, considering the cheap price of ram these days. I have gotten full throttle to run using VMWare - By installing that under windows 2000, setting my "ram" in vmware to 256, and installing win98 under vmware. Then I put the game in, set up the sound, and played.
Downside is that vmware is a tad expensive.
