Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just installed the most recent WINE release (I did not have WINE installed previously). I then installed Winamp (XMMS had been having problems, but it fixed itself... somehow.... So I don't need winamp anymore) and KazaaLite which I couldn't get to run.
After this, though, I tried to play RtCW:ET, the Linux version, which I had installed previously, and was working perfectly on the highest quality settings. But now it is very, very jumpy, even on the lowest quality settings, even on the main menu and in the intro.
I tried reinstalling it, because I assumed WINE might have modified ETs config, somehow. But it still ran the same. Then I tried reinstalling my video card (GeForce 3 Ti 200), but the problem remains.
I have since tried running Quake3 and America's Army, just to test them, and they also run the same. All three of these games run off of OpenGL (In Linux, at least).
My normal desktop applications (GAIM, MOZILLA, XMMS) run fine, so I am led to believe this is an OpenGL problem.
I didn't exactly know what to search for on google.com, but if someone here could help me out a little, be it telling me what might be wrong, or telling me what to search for on google, it would be greatly appreciated.
