Default My dvd drive

I've got a dvd drive and I bought a game on dvd. I don't have dvd decoder software installed on my pc so does that mean I won't be able to install this game? I want to know before I open it.

I'm using Windows XP Home SP2 btw...

no you will just not be able to watch DVD's you can install the game fine

EDIT: the decoder decodes video not data dvds. I used to not be able to watch movies in media center without a decoder but could use game dvds and stuff perfectly fine.
