    Well, I'd like to amend that link I gave earlier. I found out after I looked at it more closely that there are 2 sets of installers on the site. The first set is for native Linux clients (meaning no extra software required other than the MS Windows CDs), and the second, larger section is for WINE/Cedega. These installers simply make copying the files easier, but will still require you to have some sort of WINE installed on your system. WINE is free but not designed for gaming, Transgaming's Cedega (WineX) is designed for games, but isn't free (unless you like compiling from source, and the source version doesn't have copy protection support).

    well from what I know, you need to be in run level 3 in order to install video drivers
    in order to get there you must know your root password

    in a terminal type su
    enter your root password
    now type /sbin/telinit 3
    this should log you out of X and bring you to runlevel 3
    login as root with the root password
    now you should be able to run the rpm using ./rpm-name-or-file.rpm
    with some video drivers you may have to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    in order for the driver to load, with an NVidia card I know you have to
    remove the lines
    Load "dri"
    Load "GLCore"
    and replace
    Driver "nv"
    with
    Driver "nvidia"

    as for running games, some games you can get an actual linux version for
    for instance I run Unreal Tournament, and Neverwinter nights they both have linux versions avalible. There are other games aswell but what your trying to run your gonna have to get a version of WineX for like 30 bucks, you can run diablo 2 and Age of empires from that one, Havn't tried Call of duty

    Not to nitpick here, but a copy of Cedega (formerly known as WineX) costs $15USD, since it's a monthly subscription ($5USD) with a minimum initial subscription of 3 months.
