The legitimate source you got it from should probably have instructions.

We can't help you if you didn't buy it.

CDRs hold 700MB of data (older versions 650MB)
DVDRs hold 4.7GB of data
DVDR-DL hold 8GB+ of data
Bluray holds 25GB of data
Blu??? holds 50GB of data which is the capacity of commercial blurays.

You'll need a burner and blank media to burn any of those media types. Various burners have various capabilities. And might require a certain media type.

man mount
man sudo
man su
man mkisofs
man growisofs
man cdrecord
man wodim
man ln
man mknod
man udev
man umount

Is this a version meant to run in Linux? Was it obtained legally? If not Linux then what OS / architecture? If not legally then bye. If legally, didn't it come with instructions?

Maybe a little linux course...

http://www.linux.org/lessons/

You can learn by yourself through trial and error, but you might like a more structured introduction to using linux. You can learn a lot by simply reading the man(manual) pages when you have to use a command.

This is man man, the man page for the command man.

I would suggest you go to their web site for information. The minimal search I did on the site did not show it would work on anything but windows but I don't know how dated that info is. Here's a link to documentation but I didn't see anything on a quick scan of it to tell either way.

There will either be a problem or there wont. You might need to also buy cedega or whatever they call it this month. Wabi / wine / cross over office / cedega / ...... It is basically a way to run "SOME" windows applications in Linux. Games can be a bit iffy since they travel the less beaten path. But "SOME" of them work just fine. Quake was always a favorite of mine because it actually has a linux version. The game itself is mostly free, but the levels and artwork are strictly copyrighted.

Seeing that that game appears to be from Loki, a once beacon of hope for linux gaming. It should run in linux and probably has a linux version of sorts.
