Question How do I install a game "Sim City 4" or is it not able to run with Linux

I have been reading all day after installing my Mandrake Linux 9.2 and now I can't for the life of me figure out how to install any of my new and old games on the OS. I am a newbie and know very little about using Linux. I am currently trying to get through the help but so far nothing that can help me. Thanks for all your help.

If the games were made for Windows only, they will not work natively in Linux. Probably your best bet for getting them running is to use Wine or WineX.

Sim City 4, I believe, is actually out for Linux.
