|jam means your Q6600 might be running too fast to allow the game to work. That's why I asked if it'd install and run on an older system.|
Mo'Slo just might allow the game to run on a modern system...the game was built to run on a PII/266 and it will (barely). You have a helluva lot more speed than that.
I've played the game on systems ranging from a Duron 700 to an Athlon XP3000+ but those are also quite old systems now.
Crimson Skies also had issues with certain cd/dvd drives and some video cards. Hard to say if any of those issues are the culprit here though.
