i assume your talking about the client, and you'll need either
Wine or WineX to run it .. .

There seem to be no ports of Half-Life to Linux (only the servers) - there are, however, a number of posts on how to get it working with Wine or WineX.

It appears to be: use Wine/X or Windows.

sorry.

I heard somewhere that WineX is free via CVS, what is CVS?

Cheers
