I've read alot of problems with this but none are for windows 98 SE and i don't know how to fix it. Here is my Direct X diag, and since i dont really know how to read it i cant spot problems for myself :(

Now you don't say what problem(s) you experience but according to your DxDiag file you have a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro graphicscard. Unfortunately it does not support T&L so you will have to get a new graphicscard.
If you can tell what motherboard or if brandname computer which brand, model and serial number then we can try help you find the graphicscard best fit for your computer.

You will also need to upgrade to DirectX 9.0c

The motherboard in my computer is a Bx133-RAID Im not sure if this is correct or not but i believe that the motherboards serial number is 3036A633-08285L4CG :(

Just so people know, directX 9 is for XP/2000. Unless there has been a recent change by Microsoft, DirectX 8 is the newest that will run on 98SE. This has not been a problem for me yet with my Win98SE machine even for games that use DirectX 9.0b under XP.
Since that machine is down right now I can't test CotN on it to see if that runs.

Your motherboard is made by Abit and should have a AGP slot that supports AGP 1X/2X 3.3V device as stated in the original AGP1.0 specification. Unfortunately it's close to impossible to find AGP graphicscards today for the 3.3V Signaling Voltage (AGP 4x is made for 1.5V signaling voltage as the AGP2.0 specification demands) not to mention if you should be so lucky to find one it will most likely not support T&L. Installing a graphicscard not made for 3.3Volt will ruin the graphicscard and/or the motherboard.
Only solution seems to be getting a GeForce 5200 PCI.
DirectX9 for Win98SE/ME arrived about 2 months after the version for Win2000/XP

He's already running 9.0b according to the DXdiag.
