I have a group of TGQ files extracted from "Dungeon Keeper 2" which I don't know how to view.  I know they're cinematics, but so far haven't been able to locate a program which allows me to access them.  Any suggestions?

Try googling for GSpot which identifies the codec used for encoding media.  It is likely to be bad news though as lots of games use bespoke engines for playing their video clips.  You will almost certainly be able to extract the audio component as a WAV using GAP - http://bim.km.ru/gap/ but I guess you want the movie.

On your Dungeon Keeper CD look for a file called rap.exe . Copy this file and the video you want to view into a folder, rename the xxxx.tgq (the video you want to watch) to rap.tgq and then start rap.exe with a double-click to watch the movie. Just in case rap.exe is not on the CD it can be obtained from the Dungeon Keeper 1 CD.

Thank you, I just realized my second sentence makes no sense. The exe should be installed on the HDD, if not it can be found on the CD 1.
