I have a winXP system with Pentium 4 and 2.2GHz. I am trying to play Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow but the configuration utility is telling me I have inadequate pixel shader support, and that is preventing the game from running. What can I do to make it work?

The video/graphics card you use must support Pixel Shading (directx 9 feature).  If you have a GeForce MX card, then you must upgrade your video card (to one that supports it).  An ATI 9500/9800 or a GeForce FX card should do the trick.  There should be a readme file that came with the game that shows supported video cards.  Bummer.
