Yeah I've done alot of research here and there, while in my quest to learn linux is to find an alternative to windows for my games. If it doesn't work, no sweat I'll just have to live with it..

Not only that, but cedega is WINEX which is a variant of WINE So in all sense is to go with WINE and make that work.
Well I went to yast, to partitioner, and edit the windows partition and uncheck mount read only. Then I rebooted linux and I got the option to paste file, but still I get an access denid error. I check the permissions and it said view and modify content. so How do I write to the windows partition????
Please I beg any of you to help me.

Yop, techieMoe is right, change it to FAT32, or else just go in Windows and manualy copy your Wine profile (the /windows/root thing you talked about), then try it again in Suse.
FAT32 read/write support in Linux is excellent, even better than Windows one (you can create partition bigger then what ms will allow, etc.).
NTFS: there is some write support (writing over a file of the same size, no creation of files or directories, etc.) but I suggest you don't even try it."To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."

I never tryed Cedega myself but I know Wine (even for older games) is not perfect and each and every games installation is a challenge.
Using Wine is ok, I use it some apps for which I cannot find a good linux-based equivalent (like DVD Shrink for instance).
But I know a guy that digs Wine for games:
