you need to set compatibility mode for win 98. to do this, open my computer, right click on the cd's icon and select properties. once the properties window is opened, select the compatibility tab (around the top of the window) and check the bubble that says "use copmpatibility mode for" and select win98 in the drag down box. then try to play. if this doesnt work try uninstalling, do the process described above, then re-install. Additionally, if you dont already have it, get winxp service pack 2 from microsofts website.
Hope this helps
