For those who'd like to play, but can't install, run, etc.
((Not sure if I should put this in the off-topic forum, or not; so here goes!))
I've done a bit of poking around, and talked to several people- both on the server, and out of it.
It'd seem that the 'Good old games' version of NWN interfaces just fine with newer graphics cards and operating systems; it can run on Windows 7 and Vista just fine, and it'll cooperate with next generation graphics cards.
If anyone is looking to get back into NWN, but is otherwise having issues, try this! It'll let you play where as the old discs will not.
(Note: In some cases you have to download and install the 1.69 critical rebuild.)

The copy of Neverwinter Nights that's available through GoG.com.
It let me return to playing, when installing my game through my old discs failed miserably.
I'm not sure if they've done something to the code, but it seems to work for people who're having trouble getting a hard-disc copy of NWN to work with an up-to-date PC.
