how do you 'tweak' a video card?
I need better frame rates.

Well, there is one golden rule to optimizing a system for maximun performance. Your proscessor is responsible for frame rates and the video card is responsibe for the graphics quality of a game. But there is a way to tweak your video card to squeeze a few FPS out of it.
First, right click on your desktop and select properties.
Then, click on the tab that says settings.
Next, click on the advanced button, and another window will come up. Depending on what video card you are using, the interface will be different. For most video cards, it's a matter of clicking on a performance/quality slider and moving the slider all the way to the performance end. Sorry if my information is vague. If it is vague, you can try www.tomshardware.com; they might have something there.
I hope this helps.
Going flying now, bye. :-wave

Depends what card you have, you can get overclocking utilities like the one i got for my nvidia but i have to say there isnt a noticable change in speed or quality

Another thing you could do is to "over Clock " your card but to be honest FS2002 is very CPU intensive so you may not see the same peformance gain that you would see in RTCW etc etc .
What card do you have ? Have a look at www.guru3d.com for some overclooking programs , if its just the over clooking you are after then down load " COOL BITS " ( again if you have a Geforce or TNT card etc etc etc ).
Thats about it really , or you could get a new CPU ........
