hi Dave,

you will need to visit the site of the manufacturer of your computer to get drivers for the video adapter. This is because ATI don't release generic drivers for that chipset. The video adapter may not actually support 3d acceleration however. You may be able to run NFS3 in software graphics mode, but it won't look pretty, or go very fast. Try running 'dxdiag' under xp to see if it's drivers support D3D. If you have an external modem the XP Generic 56k Modem driver should run it fine.
