QuakeIII works, says so here, so that's not gonna be a problem.
1) Open a console.
2) Mount your your cdrom drive (mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom)
3) cd to /mnt/cdrom (cd /mnt/cdrom)
4) Use wine to run the installer. (wine setup.exe) or (wine install.exe)
5) Make note of the windows install directory ie c:\quake3 or whatever it is.
6) cd to your home directory (cd ~)
7) cd tom .wine/c/quake3 (quake3 is example, substitute from step5)
8) find the quake3 executable (dir *.exe)
9) run it! (wine whateverseemsliketheexeis.exe)

Hope this helps...

Try editing the ~/.wine/config file, more specifically, the part that says
Quote:
[Version]
;"Version"="win98"
Try un-commenting that line, ie remove the semi-colon.

Type in console: vi ~/.wine/config
Then scroll down until you see [Version] like I mentioned in my previous post. Then do the stuff I mention in my previous post.

don't use vi if you don't know how, use gnp in X or pico in command prompt

In vi you use the arrow keys to scroll. Hit the <insert> button on the keyboard to add stuff in. To quit, hit the escape key then type :q, or to save and quit type :wq

E325: ATTENTION
Found a swap file by the name "/var/tmp/config.swp"
owned by: root dated: Sun Nov 2 12:02:29 2003
file name: ~root/.wine/config
modified: YES
user name: root host name: localhost.localdomain
process ID: 15299
While opening file "/root/.wine/config"

(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
different instances of the same file when making changes.
Quit, or continue with caution.

(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /root/.wine/config"
to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
If you did this already, delete the swap file "/var/tmp/config.swp"
to avoid this message.

Swap file "/var/tmp/config.swp" already exists!
[O]pen Read-Only, (E)dit anyway, (R)ecover, (Q)uit, (D)elete it:



and if i click edit anyway this is what i get and i cant move
