I'd tend to agree with you that your computer is way to slow. I've read posts from people with P2 400 cpus having performance problems. I have a P3 866 with 256mb of memory and it works great for me. Even with your computer being too slow though I would expect something displayed on the screen even if it was very choppy. Your video card may not be able to support the rendering routines they are using. Does your video card support Direct X? If so what version?
I'm not sure what is required to display the graphics. Most of the knowledgeable people tend to hang out on a MSN forum, might want to post there instead.
