Default Error, im freakin out man...

I get this error message when I try to use an install file or some other files:

C:\windows\system32\config.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and microsoft windows Applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

You can also attempt to convert NTFS to FAT32, but it requires a 3rd party program such as Partition Magic which has its' problems as well as seen here:

Converting NTFS to FAT32 (http://faq.arstechnica.com/link.php?i=1820)

Here are 3 google groups searches for further reading:

google 1 (http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...dowsxp.general)

google 2 (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...tions.+Choose+'Close'+to+terminate+the+application.&btnG=Search& meta=site%3Dsearch)

google 3 (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...+fat32&spell=1)

Good luck! Let us know if we can help further
