    you wil need cedaga for gaming. wine is great but the people over at transgaming have taken wine and added more game support to make cedaga.

    As far as I know, Winex/Cedega will not run Halo. There are certain Windows games that Cedega runs extremely well such as Half-Life and its mods and Starcraft. I also understand Duke Nukem runs very well. There are other games it will not run at all and there's everything in between.

    Have a look here for how games are rated.

    My experience with Cedega says that there's really no way to tell until you try it on your system. Some games rated 5 out of 5 don't work at all on my system, while games rated 0-3 work beautifully. I've had systems where *no* games would run using Cedega and ones that would run any game I threw at it. It's unpredictable.

    AFAIK you cannot install packages on Knoppix, therefore you cannot install Cedega, therefore YES, you would need to install a distro before you could try it.

    Also, you wouldn't be able to load Halo anyway unless you have 2 CDROM drives, since Knoppix locks the one from which it boots.

    and wouldn't you be able to install it non permentently? (like on RAM)
