good and bad news

the posts to your question will appear right here as mine did when i wrote this. also you can tell the forum to track this thread, meaning when a new post is made, it will e-mail you telling you there is a new post.

To answer your question about games on Vista, wait until the Service Pack and then try installing the games again. Vista has compatibility issues with a lot of things. if you want to play the games, just make your system dual boot of XP and vista. google these words: XP VISTA DUAL BOOT. you will find some good posts from pcmag.

Hope this helps.
