Question Dark Forces and win xp

Hello,

I'm in the mood to play the classic, but I cant get the game to detect the soundcard when I install Dark Forces on my new XP box. ANy suggestions?



Then Fëanor swore a terrible oath. His seven sons leapt straightway to his side and took the selfsame vow together, and red as blood shone their drawn swords in the glare of torches. They swore an oath which none shall break, and none should take, by the name even of Ilúvitar, calling the everlasting Dark upon them if they kept it not; and Manwë they named in witness, and Varda, and the hallowed mountain of Taniquetil, vowing to persue with vengeance and hatred to the ends of the World Varda, Demon, Elf or Man as yet unbord, or any creature, great or small, good or evil, that time should bring forth unto the end of days, whoso should hold or take or keep a Silmaril from their possession." -The Silmarillion

hmmmmm.. wel for what i know about windows systems (and i dont know that much )

Windows NT and 2000 are build for networks.. and dont play games very well

Windows XP no longer has a DOS capability so you cant play games that need DOS anymore

Windows ME has a lot of problems and isnt as stable as 98...

i use windows 98 SE.. it is the most stable windows of them all.

I have the slightly upgraded version of Dark Forces, it's desiogned to work for both DOS and Win95.

I can get it to install and run on WinXp, but I cannot get the sound to setup, it will not detect my soundcard, or even work when I set it *sigh* the game just isnt the same withought sound
