Tried it here. Seems to run nice.
1280x1024. Game details all at max, with all available options on.
Not a single stutter and fps seemed solid.

Not yet, but there are mountable small image files of the play disk to circumvent such things.

The image is only 2 megs. You should have 2 megs left.

BTW. The game runs noticeably better on my 6800 ultra. Very smooth at 1280x1024 4xAA/16xAF MAX detail options. Nice. I'd say the FPS is between 40-60 fps most of the times and never dips below 30 fps.

README

Improvement
===========

* Increase performance on NVIDIA 6800 series cards running on high
resolution.


Bug Fixes
=========

* Game crashing under certain conditions in Online Lobby for game
running on Windows 98 and Windows ME.
* An internet connection is no longer required to host LAN games.
