Rainbow Six / Half-Life

I have installe wine and it works well, using some windows apps... so I wanted to put a few games on the linux box and try it out (RH9 and KDE) I installed rainbox six and half-life

Problem 1 - Half-Life
All seems to work well but I get this problem on start up...

"Half-Life requires 16bit bolor. Please change your desktop settings to HiColor. Sometimes this is call "32757 colors" or "65535 colors."

Its this a wine problem, KDE problem, RedHat problem, and how do I fix it?

Problem 2 - Rainbow six

Very thing seems to work well but I can't use my mouse or keyboard, how do I get them working (i very new to this so I need major help with this eg. finding files if i'm going to update them)

The half-life one is easy. Just change the 'default color depth' in your XF86Config to 16. It is probably set at 24 right now, and that is why you get the error.

Not sure about the Rainbow six problem.
