Linux games install and directory guide

I ran across this very informative piece yesterday while trying to figure out how to install games/apps from a CD. It sure seems alot more complicated than you know who. None of the familar "Click here to install or uninstall" stuff. IMHO every Linux CD should come with a bottle of aspirin. is the link

I'm sure i'll be back soon with many questions.

everyone experiences a bit of culture shock when migrating from windows... linux is just now becoming a decent gaming platform. all i really play is quake 3... so i can't give too much advice... but trust me, you get used to the directory structure.
