    Depends which games (whether they are linux ports). Otherwise you need w.i.n.e. to run them.

    They should. If you really want to run Windex games on Linux, you'll need winex (now cedega). Check out transgaming.com for more info.

    Basically cedega is wine with directX support. Cedega has DX9 support and is rumored to play pretty much anything.

    Cedega? The same as winex...$15 is the cheapest you can get off paying for it.

    Cedega can be downloaded via CVS for free from the transgaming.com site.

    Yer $15 gets you precompiled packages rpms etc and also Point2Play which is a top notch configuration/installer front end.
