    I suggest you post exact symptoms and errors, so we can help you troubleshoot it.
    Also, you might want to start a new thread with a descriptive subject (such as the kind of error you are getting or such.) That way, if anyone else is experiencing the problem you have, they can find your thread and benefit from it.

    Hello there, and welcome to the forums.

    As a great suggestion, as a longtime GNOME and Red Hat user -- go and download the latest Fedora Core 4 DVD or installation discs, and then read up on my Tips and Tricks page.

    That will give much better performance, better usability, and an overall better atmosphere. You are using the Win ME of Red Hat ;D Well maybe what MS intended ME to be :P

    Then what you want to do is grab the nVIDIA drivers using yum and the Livna repo. That will get you some good OpenGL support and speed. Plus, the 2.6.12 kernel is alot better than the 2.4.19 or whatever that RH9 uses.

    I highly reccomend this:

    Download the Fedora Core 4 DVD (or PM me your address and I can mail you a copy if you are on dialup).

    Install it, and I reccomend using the Install everything option.

    Add the new repos, per my guide. Then open up a Command Prompt and run
    yum update


    Install the new nVIDIA drivers as my guide states


    Install the Point2Play rpm

    Install your game

    Enjoy the game, and a great OS ;D
