I am trying to installing XP 64 and the only way to do this is by booting
from CD. I did this to install XP ages ago and that was fine but now when I
try to boot from a cd I get this message 'memory overflow error'. I have
tried rearranging all IDE connections, flashing BIOS and even using different
CD/DVD drive. Nothing works and I really want to play Far Cry 64. Any ideas
would be a gtreat help. Cheers

Hi

This install is onto a 64-bit system?

I am betting that you do not have a 64Bit enabled chip installed ["ages
ago" likely precedes the availability of 64Bit systems] in your
Computer. If not, either forget 64Bit programs OR buy a new Computer
equipped with that capability.
