Does anyone know the best place to get the best version of DirectX? Also, once it's downloaded does it work automatically or do you need to make changes manually with it?

probaly numerous other sites as well.

Though it should update through windows update in vista?

The best place (and personally I think it should be the ONLY place) to download DirectX from is here (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en).
You don't need to do anything after you finish installing DirectX, not even a restart is required.

Many thanks for the info guys! Do I need to put the DirectX files in the Sports Interactive or FM files?

No, you download 1 file and run it, when it finishes, you're done, you can delete that file you downloaded and continue with your life.

It's on the disk. Why do you want to download it?
