I have been pondering building an old Win98 computer myself... most of the time when playing PC games I am playing older games.
Heh, I went there first but they were all having the same problem I'm having.

I spent a few hours trying to fix it tonight and actually came up with a small work-around. As far as I know, no one else has come up with a way around the problem before now. Check it out here:

I've been playing through the game for a couple hours now. Its so great.
