This has been asked lots of times on the forum, and the answer is more or less: wine is bta software. Some people can use it, lots can't.
I suggest you search this forum, search google, or go here: http://www.winehq.org/Docs/wine-faq/t1.shtml
Point is though, that may give up after a while as wine isn't yet what it's supposed to be.

Download wine and a program called winesetuptk. THat way you get wine and a great gui to help configure it. I haven't gotten any games to work on wine, but I have gotten several progs like Drammatica Pro and Sibelius to work. It's fun to tinker with I suppose, but don't get stressed if you can't get it to work.

Are you sure? I am almost positive that Half-Life does NOT have a linux version available (well, a linux client. There has been a linux server has for a long time). I would LOVE to be proved wrong though

Kater, check first before you say something.
neither Half-Life or Counter-Strike play native under linux, only the server can be runned under linux.
I suggest WineX.

I actually have had good experiances with wineX. I succesfully ran ran several games like return to castle wolfenstine and quake 3. I experianced that games from id software run well. I also heard half life runs really good, as if it were a native linux binary. A few other games didn't work though. Tombraider doesn't and some other.

schatoor, Return to castle wolfenstein and Quake3 are availeble as native ports.
Better to use those, much faster.

Hey nivek WHATS UP!!!
You are the nivek from WC right?
I think there is a linux version of counter-strike out there so if you don't mind spending extra cash then you could get that.
