Soldier of Fortune 2 Multiplayer Error

I just purchased SOF2. The single player game works fine. When I try to load the multiplayer I receive the following error

Couldn’t load sof2mp_default.cfg

And it won’t allow me to play. Activision’s support site totally blows. I did everything they suggested. Uninstalled and reinstalled the game. Reinstalled the most current drivers for my Geforce3 Ti500. Went back to the last released drivers. All of this and I still receive the error. I’m running Counter-Strike and many other online games that use OpenGL without and issue. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks…
