Default 9600XT trouble

I got this new card for christmas, and I slapped it in and went to install the software, and when I put the disk in with the software and drivers and what not, I got this error message:

16 bit Windows Subsystem

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable
for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close'
to terminate the application.

[close] [ignore]

So I chose close, and I downloaded the drivers off of ati.com.

It prompted for a reboot, so I did. When the computer booted, all my monitor settings looked funny, but I didn't think anything of it because I could change it up in the video card's settings. My computer finished booting and i got this error message:

CLI.exe - Application Error

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK
to terminate the application.

I clicked ok, and I was a little worried. I clicked on the catalyst control center, and got this same error message. I'm stumped. Anyone know what the deal is?

Default Hey

What operating system do you have. It almost sounds like you have windows 98 on there.If so you need to download the windows 98 drivers.
