Question DirectX games on linux

After being forced to reinstall windows on my dual boot box due to directx probs, i was wondering if any/which directx versions exist for linux... I sure would like to play Flight Sim 04 or Battlefield 2 on linux...

thanks in advance

*edit: my apologies, please move this to the games forum *

I've been looking at running win98 games under wine on linux and over at the Whirlpool forum I was given these two links for modifying the free vmware player, it might be of interest

and on Wine configuration

One or more may be of use to you
