can somebody help me? i am havin the same problems that some people are havin with bf2. i installed it once before and decided that i wanted to uninstall it so i could have some more space on my hd. i go to reinstall it with the same computer i had before and it wont install. i get to the "installshield wizard is preparing to install bf2142 on your computer" then it just stops.
Try cleaning your registry with a program like Tuneup Utilities, it should clear any previous registry files about an installed BF 2142, these are sometimes left behind after an uninstall, and can mess it up when you try to reinstall.
