    What is it doing? Freezing? Errors?

    Have you tried 'compatability mode'? Start menu/system tools.

    I had the same problems with quake 2. It would not install on xp because of the language. Copied it like you did & away it went. My problem turned out to be in the language options in the control panel. I had to select the language twice. Once done it installed OK.
