windows games


hi, i have a small problem!!

i have a few windows games tgat i know are available for linux such as simcity 3000, rail road tycoon2, quake3 but the problem is every where i look on the internet you have to buy it! is there anything like the doom3 port where you download 1 file and copy the rest from the windows CD as i dont want to buy the game again when i already have it for windows.

thanks in advance for any help

For quake3 you just need the pak0, then apply the 1.32 linux patch.

Go here for Linux native installers for Windoze CDs:

Ravage makes a lot of good installers, usually they are pretty small too.
