Ok, this doesn't really affect the functionality of my machine at all...

I run Win2k on a dell 2.4 gHz that originally came with XP, I've added an older 10 gig hard drive that I use basically as extra storage, but has an older version of Win 98 installed. Certain programs, when I try to use the run function (command, for example) give me this error message:

16 bit Windows Subsystem

D:\WINNT\System32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choos "Close" to terminate the application.

There are two options, "Close" and "Ignore."

Again, this only affects a very small number of apps, but this includes one program I've been able to run in the past but had to uninstall; now I want to reinstall it, and I get this error message when I try to use the self install.
The program that I'm specifically trying to install is SETI@home.
