Wolfenstein will not load on my dell P4 1.8ghz

Hi all I am having problems loading Wolfenstein on my computer.
I recently bought a Dell P4 1.8Ghz, 256 MB DDR, running xp, with a 64MB NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 4X AGP Graphics Card with TV-Out.

after i install wolfenstein, it comes up with a can not load open GL subsystem error message. Not exactly sure on the error message but it was something to that extent.

My friend at work says its my video card because it does not support GL or something like that? could it be my video card?
any help or tips would be appreciated.

I'd try putting new drivers on from nVidia. You may be using the stock WinXP drivers for your card which aren't very good.

Your friend may be right. If you are using the WinXP drivers, you do not have the OpenGL support. Simply download the drivers from nVidia and you will be fine.

Yes, you need OpenGL to run it. Check the website, if they don't provide one, buy new video card.
