Cannot run Unreal 1 in OpenGL with Geforce2 GTS and WinME

I cannot play Unreal 1 in OpenGL mode. When I switch to OpenGL mode I get the following message:

‘Unreal has caused an error in KERNEL32.DLL.
Unreal will now close.’

As mentioned I have a Geforce2 GTS (latest drivers) running in Windows ME. All other OpenGL games run fine (Half-Life, Quake 3 etc).
