Attention: Please respond to this at its own thread not here! (I screwed up.

Hey I just got this rig going on Weds with the (believe it or not) intent of running sof2 a little snappier and to run Vista.
I never could find a 8800 driver that would even run on Vista!! Even though that's plastered all over NV's site in reference to the 8800. Groan.
Furthermore I cannot run sof2 at all
nor Prey nor ReturnToCastleWolfenstein nor can I even install QuakeII. Most of the problems are with OpenGL. Most of these failures end in the OpenGL window stating problems with finding bits and pieces of GL. With GLview I can find each of the "failed" files.
Maybe the problem is with xp64 but before I tear this really blistering fast wonderful cpu balancing system down and go back to 'multicore ignorant' xp I want to know if anyone else can successfully run any of these programs on an 8800 with even xp.
