    i know the soviet works. ive never tried anything else. it says "please insert the correct

    CD-ROM and restart the application."
    the auto run screen comes up fine but that message comes up when i click install.

    oh yeah! I used to get that error. I don't remember how I fixed it though...

    but that was on my old XP install, I guess you could reinstall?

    Explore the disc.
    Find setup.exe
    Change compatibility to Windows 98
    Run setup.exe
