    "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
    "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

    What older programs?
    There's a lot of old programs that don't like Win2000/XP because of the NT base. Of course, they didn't like NT4.0 either for the same reason.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    You could try installing it under a compatability mode. Make a shortcut to the install file, right click on that shortcut and choose properties. Click on the Compatibility tab and check off run this program in compatibility mode for..., you can then choose 95 or 98/ME, try both, somtimes if one doesn't work the other will. Hope that helps.

    BTW, what is this doing in general hardware discussion?
