Sorry to be changing the subject but... Where do you guys get games to
work on linux from? I mean good games, not just 2-3MB crappy ones
The latest shooters from Id and Epic (Quake 4 and UT2004) have native linux
clients available for download or on the CD. You need the windows versions
of the games for the game data.
Some independent developers are porting to Linux, but most mainstream titles
are not ported. You could try running windows games using wine or cedega,
but most of the time it's not worth the effort (IMO, certainly if you
already paid for a windows license) unless you really want to make a point
of only playing on Linux.

There are a lot of older games ported by Loki some years ago but most are
not running on modern distributions anymore and since Loki is out of
business there's no way they are going to be updated to work again.
