    .exe's?


    I just updated Fedora to the Stable Core 6 distro...

    I logged in and saw my Phantasy Star Universe DVD on the desktop...so I click it...

    then, I run the setup.exe, and it started to run the install for the game, and it even began to install files to

    C:\Program Files\Sega

    ....But, there is no C:\ with Fedora...its just Filesystem etc. etc....

    what was it doing?? Is there a way I can play this game on Linux??

    I already have that installed. (Wine)

    What Im confused on is how it does the C:/ install. It even lets me do the install...but I canceleld before it completed just to be safe.

    Does it create a fake windows directory or something within the linux file system to let me run windows applications?
