I didn't know there were ports of those games to linux?
You can't just "convert" a program into linux, those games probably use directx, there is no implementation of directx out side of windows/xbox

Well I can relate to lack of funds...I've been waiting for some to get WineX 3.0.

HOWEVER, that being said, you can always use the CVS version for free...but it means you'll have to tinker a bit, but I know Warcraft 3 works with it.
As for NWN, check out the NWN site, I'm sure there's a link to the installer there, all you need is the CDs, the installer downloads for free.

If you search on google, you can find the Q3 installer, RTCW installer(copy you pak files from the disc over after you install), UT2k3 has the installer on disc 3, Army Ops is available for download, UT has an installer at, Enemy Territory is also available for download. 3dgamers tends to have most of these files. For RTCW, find the linux binaries, the file should be rather large, 70 meg or better, if I remember right. In all cases, you need the windows disc for these.
