as for sound go to "kmix" under multimedia in the kicker. (start menu for M$ users)

Make sure the master is un-muted and adjust your levels as u like 'em.

Cedega is not free, you have to pay a monthy sub but I can't vouch for its abilities.

have a look around, you might find a better game for linux!

nothing wrong gnukish, just thought I'd add to what you were saying.

I hear its very good but i have not had much luck myself. Then again I find recompiling my kernel fun so don't need games...
