I don't think that CD drive speed would be the problem, but:

go into your CD-Drive, and select "properties" with right click
you should see CD-Speed, change it to a more suitable value (what, like 8x, I think that's what I had on my old computer, and LBA worked fine)

I can do that on mine, its a lite-on drive, I don't know about yours.

As for the patch, somebody else will have to help you....I don't need the patch, I still use my old 166mhZ along with my new 2.2 ghZ Dell....hehe....

Oh yes......

1- no CD rom speed isn't a issue, does your CD spin up right after the logo ?

2- can't help you with that, but can you make a sceenshot ? the problem sounds a bit weird

I have almost EXACTLY the same specs, but it works fine for me... except that I have to use it on my own AMD K6 233, it doesn't work on a AMD Athlon 900....

I have to start in real dos mode but it works.
I used the patch on win 98 insted of winxp, at first try it didn't work but I realize that if I configured the sound just with 2 speakers insted od quadraphonic sound (4 speakers) it worked then.
my cdrom is ok and spinned all the way. I can't not say why it used to hang but as soon as I played it with 2 insted of 4 speakers it WORKED.
Thanks to you all
