Nintendo GBA or NDS Emulator and Roms for Linux???

Hey Everyone,

Im new to linux and to using emulators and roms so bare with me here...
Ive just installed linux on my computer so im Dual Booting with it and Vista... i need to figure out how to either use my current emulators on linux or get a multi platform emulator ( which is fairly easy but just wait till u hear the problems.

I have wireless but the software is for windows, so the net wont work on linux at the moment, so i cant try to download the driver software or anything... and when i try to download emulators or roms with windows the file extensions are always tar or zip files and will only open with internet explorer... Can Someone please help me out???

Why don't u you try downloading wine (Windows Emulator).
If you're running fedora go to terminal
yum install wine -y

Then mount your windows partition by
mkdir /media/C
mount -t ntfs /dev/(your location of the hard disk) /media/C

Then locate your emulators on the windows partition, right click on them and click "open with wine"


emulators, wireless
