Well, might need some more info. Quake3 should run okay and the \ / thing shouldn't be an issue. I have cedega installed so I tend to use that for quake3. Quake3 also has a linux native, but has alsa issues - which is why I run it in wine/cedega...

My advice for newbies is to pay the $15 and get cedega/point2play and it makes running games in linux easy...

Unfortunately the native install has various problems with the alsa sound driver, so it is sometimes easier to install and run under wine/cedega with some sound cards. It was fine when I had the old SB128, but lot's o' trouble with most onboard or non creative sound systems...

So I deleted my native install and run it with cedega now... It's also the only good way to run quake2, otherwise you have endless mouse cursor and sound issues...

My advice is to make Linux games, and leave M$ with nothing.
