The new RC is verrrry nice.

I am running it and it's rock stable. Only problem I have had is that Punkbuster in RTCW claims I am running an illegal API

i think i fixed it... i tried installing service pack 2... after a while it said it could not install service pack and it was reverting... after it reverted, everything went back to normal... i was able to boot fine and everything seems to be working again ... im going to do some more testing tomorrow to make sure everything is good but looks like i might just be safe for now
