It means you need to stop playing SoF2 and get a better game

goto microsoft updates and search for "DirectX 9.x"

download and install.

either that or try playing the game in windows 98, XP may not be backward compatible for older games.

XP has an emulation mode to help you run older games - that's the whole point - there is no need to create a dual-boot or get another pc with Win98.
