    Even if you did get it to work, it would be very slow. Your onboard VGA does not support TnL for sure & it is necessary to play that game.

    Check to see if you have an AGP Slot. If you do, you would be better getting a cheap GF4MX card ( or even a 4200 is pretty cheap ) or a PCI card if you don't have an AGP Slot.
