The notebook has an onboard SIS-630 grahic card and 32mb ram. On my notebook
the game don't not start and don't give any a message.

From the box:

Video card with 32MB or more memory and one of these chipsets is required:

ATI Radeon 7500 or greater
NVidia GForce 2 or greater

Even if it would run, I think a SiS630 would be seriously underpowered for
this game.

If I read that correctly, the answer is "not even close". Sounds like
you
got 32 megs of RAM for the entire system. This game needs 32 megs of
RAM JUST ON THE VIDEO CARD!

I doubt it. Windows XP doesn't run on 32MB of RAM. Also, the SiS630 uses
shared video memory; it has no memory of its own.

With the settings: "directDraw, directD deaktivate" in hardware-acceleration
"german windows: Anzeige, Einstellungen, Erweitert, Problembehandlung,
Hardwarebeschleunigung ) I start the play and can even drive a car, but the
screen is not good and small grafics are not displayed. The driver
630_209_winxp.zip from sis are installed.
