Question X-wing Alliance Installation on Win2000

Hi people.

I've been having trouble installing X-wing Alliance on my PC, the last time i installed was under windows 98Se. but i have since upgraded my OS to Win2000. And wished to re-install this game. but everytime i install it i get the following message.

"C:\Winnt\System\Autoexec.NT. The System file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Chosse 'Close' to terminate the application."

Can anyone tell me a fix for this as i really want to play this again

The file is probably elsewhere on your system, b/c we've had the same problem w/ new installs of XP SP2. Do a search on your C: drive for autoexec.nt and if you find it elsewhere, copy the file to your Winnt\system folder.
