You will need to install wine, which is free and works pretty well, or Cedega, while Cedega is not free, it is pretty cheap and is designed to run Windows games in Linux. There are other alternatives, but usually, those are the two ones I'd recommend.

Check first in both wine and cedega's page if your game is supported. Not every game works, mind you. And expect several problems too, from minor graphical glitches to random crashes.

And when you said "Red Hat Linux", I hope you didn't mean Redhat 9...

Sometimes Crossover Linux may help, too (at least with some games and many applications):
