New computer, old game. painful, but what can ya do?
Virtual PC is not the way to go, Basically that'll limit your game to a
Trident Trio 64 video card (no DirectX support, which Diablo doesn't
really need, but lets just say, it's a bad card).
Upgrade to SP1.
Contact Blizzard tech support for assistance.
If you're only getting lag when playing online, then maybe it's not your
computer, maybe it's just your connection, or one of the 10-20 computers
between your laptop and the server. If using wireless, try a wired
connection. Drop your router, might help. http://www.dslreports.com
(Different address now, but it'll take you to
the same site) has great speed tests to check and make sure your
internet connection is running OK.
Check that, maybe your network connection to blizzard is assNballs.
