In XP you 'may' have to tweak the
computer's virtual memory setting to run these CDs.
Depends on how much ram you have. This is a memory glitch in XP when it

this program's graphics appear full screen.

'explore' your way to the files on the CD and look for the qt32.exe
quicktime installation program.
Quicktime 2.1 on Windows 7 or Vista, when the installer asks if you want
to 'search' for other versions of Quicktime, select NO or SKIP.
If you select 'yes' the installation will hang.
depending on your
setup/permissions, you may need to RIGHT CLICK the qt32 file
and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR to execute the
