RTCW Return to castle wolfestein is a very good game, runs great on my RH7.2 system. The full version is a little pricy $50 , but you can download a nice demo either mutiplayer or single player. Large servers with up to 64 people playing.

The game cd is for windows but they made the linux binaries for single and multiplayer and are avalible from: http://www.3dgamers.com/games/returnwolfenstein/

The quake series, halflife, Unreal also play very good on linux.

the RTCW demo is very easy to install. it comes as a .run file. As root just type ./filename.run and follow instructions. If you do it in xwindows it has a nice gui installer, If you do it in no xwindows, it has prompts that are easy to understand. Its almost as easy as a rpm install.

On the games front especially, I would check out: transgaming.com . Great support (IMHO) for running win games (and apps).

The business model is interesting...the user-base decides via a voting system what products or issues the company will work on. It costs $5 per month to join/vote and get your hands on winex (the linux app that allows you to run the win programs). They've also tackled their first DirectX 8 title, Max Payne (still a work in progress).

As far as apps goes, well ... depends on what you're into.

freshmeat.net
linuxapps.com
download.com

As said before
./filename.run
or
sh filename.run
if it's not working
change the permissions on the file
chmod 755 filename.run
