Problem running America's Army: Operations 1.20

I've tried dl-ing this game 3 times, and each time I get thru the entire installation process, then when I try to run the game I get the following error message--

General protection fault!

History: FD3DRenderInterface::DrawPrimitive <- FBspDrawList::Render <- RenderLevel <- FLevelSceneNode::Render <- FCameraSceneNode::Render <- UGameEngine::Draw <- UWindowsViewport::Repaint <- UWindowsClient::Tick <- ClientTick <- UGameEngine::Tick <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop

After which, I get a "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" window, which I can't close.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? (Oh, I'm running W98)

what video cards do you have? this is from their FAQ:

Q: I get an error or a General Protection Fault when I try to launch the game. What do I do?
A: Most likely you either need to get the latest version of DirectX or the latest drivers for your video card. Also make sure that your video card is supported. Voodoo cards and TNT cards are not supported.

here is a list of cards that are NOT supported...hopefully you dont have one of them:

I also get a GPF sometimes when I play, I don't know where it comes from. I did not get it before 1.2.0 was released. Did it work when it was 1.1.1 for you? The game only works on GeForce cards, Radeon and perhaps the XSabre... it works on nothing else.

I can also give you a tip... 1.2.1 was released shortly after 1.2.0 so if you just get 1.2.0, you'll have very few servers and only crappy ones.
