Quick test shows these are GOOD..!!!!!!!! No issues at all - tools work, installation a breeze.
Best thing is the texture loading times in FS seem to have been reduced substantially - at the cost of a minor frame rate hit, but better frame rate consistency. Looking out the window is much more pleasant!
Visually, it actually looks like you're running a higher level of detail than before - so I might turn the detail level down a fraction to get the fps back, or I might just leave it where it is - it's stunningly pretty.
Available for 98/ME and 2000/XP. Go get 'em.
