problems with disk space?

I have installed win 2000 on my PC.
Although I anticipated some teething problems, two issues are bugging me!

1.  I try to play a game (CM 00/01) which admittedly needs a lot of disk space, but the message appears that it's just too much to cope with.
Now, is this memory, or hard drive space?  Theorectically i've got about 22Gb free, so this is bizarre.
At the same time, this is the only programme running, so it can't be taking up too much ram either.

How can I persuade the PC that i have, in fact, plenty?

It worked before, when the PC was on Windows ME.

2. The seconfd issue is linked - my pc wants to download everyhting to my d drive, which is meant to be a back up.  How can I teach it to install in the c/programme files like everyone else?

many thanks,  neil

The game may have problems recognizing large drives.
See if there are any patches avaialable on the web site.

Also for C:\ drive problem, check the default drives and download tweakui to set defaults.

you can install the latest version v1.33 of TweakUi from Microsoft
                    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsme/guide/tweakui.exe

then make the changes in the control panel - tweakui.

I hope this helps !
