Can anyone out there help me with this?
2) shutdown, wait a few, reboot
3) fully update your OS....see if there are updates for dx (whatever version you are runing) - maybe try the DX SDK (it has extra stuff that is sometimes useful but not included with the normal DX) update ALL hardware drivers (not always a good thing...sometimes some things DO get worse, so keep the "previous" driver handy - and make sure to get a driver cleaner software)
you may have to reboot a few times durring all this
4) shutdown, wait a few, reboot
5) install game (restoring your saves/creatures if needed)
6) shutdown, wait a few, reboot
7) play game (hopfully)
note: the shutdowns are probably nessecary - dont simply do a restart or standby or log off, and by a few I mean atleast 1 minute
edit: oh...and be sure after step 4 to go back to the begining of step 3 incase there are incremental updates - stupid microsoft...i want all my updates at once

You can install DX9 on Vista without a problem. DX10 is a separate entity to DX9. If a program supports DX10 it will of course try that first, but many games do not use it and in fact require DX9 runtimes or they will not run properly. (Usually resulting in the very compatibility problems you've been having.)
In short, yes you can run the DX9 setup from the disc. It won't break anything.
Oh, and do some reading. There's a VERY good reason most game developers don't give a fig about DX10.
