you should be able to install a lot of games right from the Mandrive repository..


for example:
urpmi bzflag

There is a graphical front end to the package manager called rpmdrake which should have things categorized by type such as 'games', 'office applications', 'graphics' etc..


this page has links to Linux game sites so you can see which games you might be interested in, or check the games forum here for posts on 'favorite Linux games'

there's a website called linux-gamers.net i think that i saw the other day, and that has a link to some live CD or DVD of only games - but i looked at their webpages and they're all horrible shooting games. the site itself may be worth a look though.
