I had problems with w98 and cc5, had to reload w98 but didn't have code number. so went out and bought xp. p233 w/60 ram couldnt handle xp well. bought new m/b amd duron 1.2 and 256 ram. xp works great, no blue screens. loaded spww2 and just like other people at wargammer forums, mouse is now a turtle. u need 10 foot wide mousepad to move across screen. d/l'ed spwaw 7.1 again, burned a cd this time, loaded and works perfectly. (cc5 works too.)
bottoms line from many forums, keep an old puter with less than xp for dos games, new one for new stuff. also seeing lots of problems with spmbt and fast hardware, graphics cards, etc. I just gave up playing the older games as I have no room for two computers.
just my two cents
