    Call of Duty 2, wine, and alpha blending


    I have an AMD X2 processor with a Nvidia 8600 gts graphics card. I have Ubuntu linux. I am attempting to install Call of Duty 2 with wine but when I try to play it I get an error that my video card does not support Alpha Blending. Is there any way I can check the alpha blending thing, or is there any way to get CoD2 to play in linux? I am fairly new to linux and went with Ubunto Feisty Faun because it was free and convinient. Is there a better version of Linux for running windows games?

    Are you using the nvidia drivers or are you using the open source ones?
    Code:
    # glxinfo | grep vendor
    server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
    client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
    OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
