Wine

I have heard of peoples using wine to make it work...

there is a page about this, but its in swedish ;(
www.spel.linux.se

but I think its several pages on this subject in english if you use your best friend (read google) out there you probably find it in a few minutes.


Good Luck

team fortress has a 95% success working status as does counter-strike when running these games under wine .
and as of starcraft this is also know to run with wine and this is how your going to have to get these games working if you wish to play them with linux...so go do some reading about wine, if you dont' know what it is and what it does, and i'd advise searching this fourm for wine related threads as this is a question that comes up pretty frequently...

oh and use a text editor to open files in the terminal, such as vi, emacs, joe, pico
you may not have all these installed, but you will at least have emacs and vi probably and if you have pine installed you will have pico.

ex:
pico filename.log
vi filename.txt


etc, etc...
