Try this (got this from a related forum):

Download the patch from this web site : http://cloud.prohosting.com/ghostbot/ (active x should be on to view files) Overwrite previous executable file and run the game as usual.

Files from http://cloud.prohosting.com/ghostbot are working in WInXP. Keep in mind though, these are not no-cd cracks. You will need the game cd in the drive while playing (though it might work with a backup CD as well).

The files from http://cloud.prohosting.com/ghostbot are working, but you will not be able to use official Codemasters wide ball patch. See the frequently asked questions here: http://www.geocities.com/atulybx
