Default screen saver question

I happen to like "My Pictures Slideshow" screensaver for XP. However, my laptop runs Win2K. I can't copy the screen saver file and make it work. Is there a way to do this? Or will I have to downlaod a screensaver of the same type?

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

More than likely you will have to download a version like it. It is the same way with Vista to XP screensavers. There is something that has to be modified within them to allow them to work on any system other than the one they were designed for.

Found one Freeware Home - Free Software Downloads has one called PhotoSaver that works perfectly.
