WoW/Burning Crusade on Kubuntu 7.04


I have Kubuntu 7.04 and just installed Wine 0.9.39 and now I would like to install WoW for my daughter. First off, I am NOT a gamer and am not at all familiar with WoW. I have before me 9 CDs, five WoW CDs and four WoW Burning Crusade CDs. I was looking at this site and am not sure of how to proceed. I read this:
Quote:
Click on Places -> Home Folder in the top panel. Use this application to create a directory and copy all of the files from all of the CD's to this directory on your hard drive (overwrite when prompted).
Which CDs? Do I use all nine CDs or have the four TBC CDs replaced the five WoW CDs?

WoW is the last remaining reason that I still have XP in the house. I do not dare go Linux only till I get this WoW thing worked out as my daughter would simply lose it...

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Todd

Alt 1 was the first way that I tried it but I got an error that Installer.exe could not be found. I looked in the folder, and sure enough I could not find it.

Hmmm, if I just copy the WoW folder from Windows to Linux then do I not have to run the installer? Didn't really consider that...

yup, you can skip right ahead to "configuration"... I think. At least that's how it usually works.

The only thing you'll be missing is the desktop icon, but that is easily created. Right click the desktop - "create launcher"
under "command" write "wine [path to the warcraft executable]"
And click the "No icon" button to select an icon.
