Moderator Note: Please try to use better and more descriptive thread titles in the future. "need help!!" does not describe your actual question and we don't need to know if you need help as if you didn't, you most likely wouldn't be asking questions to begin with.

Those games aren't gonna run natively under Linux (regardless of what distro you use), unless they've been ported to Linux. You might want to look at Cedega. I've never used it myself, so I don't know what it's like.
