there is this one from the wiki

http://boxofgeeks.net/~wikirpg/FG2Rulesets/ADnD.zip

but I have to say it is only semi-functional.

There were a bunch of Guys who planned to get it up and running, but I have heard nothing more about that.

thanks perhaps I'll give it a try.

I wonder what wasn't finished.

actually its been so long since I played about with it that I can't remember what is missing (or even if it was the same version as I linked above)

found this old thread (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13322&highlight=ad%26D+edition+ruleset) where they were discussing it, but it doesn't really mention which features are lacking (although if you compare it to 4E I suppose there will be lots of "optional Extras" that are not included).

if you don't find it to your liking and are not set on 2nd Ed. you can also try
OSRIC with is a clone of 1st ed AD&D (http://oberoten.dyndns.org/fgwiki/index.php/File:OSRIC.zip)
or labyrinth lord with is a clone of the old basic D&D game. (http://oberoten.dyndns.org/fgwiki/images/e/e9/LabyrinthLordInstaller-1.0.78.zip)
both of which are also on the FG Wiki

and of course there is the commercial ruleset (available in Store for $10) Castles & Crusades (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/product.xcp?id=DGA045), which is inspired by 1st Edition AD&D, but has a few major differences.

all of these 3 rulesets come with some reference modules, whilst the 2nd ed (for legal reasons) does not have any accompanying manuals (just like 3.5E and 4E as supplied with FG)
