I could get the FS2000 at eBay for a reasonable price.
Yesterday I installed it but it is not running on my computer ?! After clicking on the FS2000 icon there is a short media of Microsoft and after that my computer comes to a halt... I have to restart it as nothing is working anymore.

I have a Pentium III 700 MHz, 256 MB RAM, ELSA Erazor II LT.

Any suggestions ?

ELSA Erazor II LT? Never heard of that video card, could very well be causing your problems. Then again im a little behind of recent accelerators. Try getting new drivers for it and see if that cures the problem. You could also upgrade directX to version 7 if you have something older. I dont trust DX8 so I cannot recomend instaling it.

Get the latest patches for MS2K. This should sort out your problem.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It does sound like a videoproblem when switching modes between the startup video and the main screen.
Try running windowed instead of fullscreen and see if you can turn off the introduction animation.

I wish I were flying

Yea, go and get a new video card. They are fairly in expensive and are easy to install yourself.
