The only way it's going to run well is using WineX. Unfortunately, it's not open source. It's a custom version of Wine (which will probably technically run it, but not well) that's made specifically for games.

There's an installer for Return to the Castle Wolfenstein to make it run natively under Linux. Google for RTCW Linux installer.
Although, I've finished that game under WineX and it run perfectly during the entire game

As it was stated RTWC runs natively under linux, you can probably get the installer somewhere at the planetwolfenstein site. So I would reccomend that.

Winex however you can only get for free if you use CVS. If you want rpms or whatever you will have to subscribe for 5 bucks a month or something like that.

Gentoo has released a cd bootable version, that requires no install to your computer. I haven't tried it myself (and on dial-up, I'm not likely to d/l the 368MB iso file), does anyone here know anything about it?

They also have a bootable version of America's Army.

Enjoy!

you can d/l the files from http://www.3dgamers.com/ and you can get the .pak files directly from the GOTY edition without doing a wine install.
