    I think you need the linux installer which takes the files from the w32 cd.

    See link for more details.

    wonderful, i knew that heir was an installer, but i didint know if it used the cd's from windows, or if yuo had to buy another set or something stupid like that


    btw 'sine' means without..hence sine emulator means 'without an emulator''...

    IIRC there was an issue that the people who provided the W32 installer on the CDs wouldn't allow any other installer to be included. So no Linux one was shipped.

    thats all good and dandy, i always had gamed on my brothers windows computer (ive never really been a very big gamer) but i kinda got addicted to nwn, and i had heard that bio supported linux, im interested to see the performace differnce, hes running a 2.8 w/ ht 1g ram 120g hd (ram is at 233 i beleve, but will check) + win Xp, I have a 1.8 ghx 512 ram 233, and 80gb drive + Gentoo. I will try to benchmark some stuff and see if i cant beat him. (graphics are nvida 2 and radeon 8500 all in wonder respectivly) my gentoo system is almost finished compiling ( i hope, i think its on package 65 ot summin of teh system install) then its just kernel config/compile along with grub and then im game. But my question is how much in the terms of games does portage have? If there is a link to the package list, that is just as good, i poked around the site, but didnt find much (as much as i love gentoo, they didn't design the site well, looks fine, but the layout is eh)

    The reason it didn't ship with a Linux installer is because of the BINK movie player. They were working for some time to get a Linux port of that or find a drop-in replacement for it. Also, there was some tweaking, etc. that had to be done, but BINK was the big delay.
