I think Counter Strike is Plataform Independent, i guess you can find a lot of instructions on how to install it searching google: www.google.com/linux
If you want to run windoze games you can try wine http://www.winehq.org/
Just some suggestions,

CS most definitely is not platform independent. Cedega runs it (I think) but Valve keep shipping updates via Steam which breaks it.

The best way is to purchase (not download a warez copy or build from CVS) a copy of Cedega. This will let you run CounterStrike and play in the online games.
