    I've installed XP SP2 on my new 24" iMac and I tried to install the original Diablo game since I don't have Classic support under OSX anymore. The game installs fine but when I go to play it it gives me a Direct Draw Error saying:

    Diablo was unable to properly initialize your video card using DirectX.

    The error encountered while trying to initialize the video card was:

    Not implemented
    at: dx.cpp line 183

    I've run all the DirectX and XP updates I can find, so I'm not sure if it's just not supported in Boot Camp or if there's something I can do to load it up. Any ideas?

    Did you install the Boot Camp drivers from the Mac OS X Leopard disc?

    I did, and I actually figured out the problem. I had to go to ATI's website and update the drivers. The first time I tried to do this I stupidly tried to install the regular XP drivers (which didn't work) because I didn't scroll down enough to see that there was a specific driver for Boot Camped XP.

    Works like a charm now! Thanks!
