    I assume you've already read the Eidos FAQ. If not:

    Championship Manager 2 aka Championship Manager 00/01.

    "Q18. Can't run cm2 series on XP or 2k
    A18. If you only have NTFS partitions on your
    hard drive, then create a small FAT32 partition, insert a Windows 98SE bootdisk and load the game up from there. Also required are DOS mouse drivers (you may have a problem if you have a USB mouse), which will have to be loaded up each time you wish to play
    unless you amend the autoexec.bat file. Failing that, the trickier option is to install and configure a DOS emulator."


    A good dos emulator is DOSBox: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1
    Championship manager 2 does work on it - see: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/comp_list.php?showID=1645&letter=C

    Hope this helps :thumbsup:
