When the intro comes(yellow words) after the beat up ship video it says there is a problem. It says on the box you need xp ,windows 98 se,Millennium(ME),2000(I have vista) but I right clickd went down to proproties clicked on that then clickd compatability set it to windows xp(service pack 2) tried to play and nothing changed.

Can it be played if you have Vista? It sounds like you need another OS.
How far into the game do you get? Do you get past Peragus?
Vista must be causing your problem. Vista is known for having all sorts of annoying and mysterious problems, this is probably one of them (also, notice that Vista isn't listed on the box as one of the compatible OS's). You should switch to XP if you want to play the game. Actually, you should switch to XP anyway.
It IS possible to play on Vista. Here you go:
cogadh has provided a lot of help about this game. However, if you follow the give a man a fish/teach a man to fish philosophy, it's probably better if I give you a link he provided.
The game can indeed run on Vista. However, without your computer specs, it's hard to know what advice to give. The Obsidian Forums are a great place to get help on this issue. Poke around there and you'll find an answer that's already been provided.
You can also check our local boards where this issue has been dealt with quite a bit as well:
Either of these ought to help you out. This is a common issue. Good luck.
Cadillacactor gave you plenty of great links to choose from, but here is one more if those don't help.
This one helped me play KOTOR2 and it should do the same for you as well.
