    So you have the Radeon 9200, and it says you need a better video card? Or that you need to update the driver for the Radeon 9200, and when you follow the instructions and the driver you downloaded will not install?

    i have the radeon 9200 and on the game it requires one of these:

    Driver tested: Catalyst v6.8 Windows XP

    Radeon 9500/9700 series
    Radeon 9550 series
    Radeon 9600 series
    Radeon 9800 series
    Radeon X300 series
    Radeon X600 series
    Radeon X700 series
    Radeon X800 series
    Radeon X850 series
    Radeon X1300 series
    Radeon X1600 series
    Radeon X1800 series
    Radeon X1900 series

    but i cant go any higher than the radeon 9250, when i try and install one of the listed it first says:

    setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. setup will now exit.

    and then it says:

    setup was unable to complete the installation. try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup

    what should i do?
