How do I install games?
I'm new to Linux and decided to install Aliens Vs Predator 2 since I always played it on Winsodws. I know that it is possible to play the game on Linux because theres a Linux dedicated server to download after you install the game. My question is how do I install the game when the setup file is .exe (windows executable)? Do you use the terminal? I'm not very good with it yet.

Also, just because there's a Linux dedicated server doesn't mean there's a Linux client that you can actually play. Some companies just like to whore out Linux boxes to host their Windows games and not give anything back (such as Valve). To the best of my knowledge there is no Linux client for AvP 2, only a dedicated server. The only way you'd be able to install it is using one of the programs I mentioned earlier.

I can't thank you enough Moe, you're always helping me out you handy person you.
Also, does Wine only allow certain programs to be emulated? (eg. msn messenger and Morpheus P2P won't install)

Some programs work very well with wine, some not so well, and some don't work at all. Usually (as in the two programs you mentioned) there are excellent Linux alternatives. For MSN, check out the program called GAIM (it supports MSN, jabber, yahoo! messenger, AIM, IRC and a couple others I can't remember). As for P2P programs, I've never heard of Morpheus, if it's a torrent app, you could try Azureus (there's a linux version), if you need something like eMule, look for aMule (I think there's also some other 'mule' program). Type 'linux p2p application' into google and you should find some more
