MOHAA Linux question

I understand you can make linux server Medal of Honor AA by copying the game off a windows install and into a linux folder. Here's the problem. I tried copying it from my NTFS drive to a Games/MOH folder on linux and It says permission is denied. I've mounted my NTFS drive and I can read off it fine but I can't copy. Is there a way to copy this folder from the ntfs drive to my linux drive within linux or not? Thanks!
BTW REdhat 8 is what I'm running and I am also running the rpm for ntfs support.

Could of give the layout of your harddisk and linuw /windows configuration ?
Problem for linux is that linux can only have acces in read only to NTFS partitions.
So if you try cut'n paste ou will never succeed.
Try copy paste or try first to convert NTFS to FAT32.

So the simple:

cp /mnt/windblows/Game/MOH /usr/games

does not work? You said you are just trying to copy it right? Your not trying to MOVE it right?

I work on a KDE3 desktop and used simply konqueror to copy paste the mohaa game from windows to linux.
From which login you perform the copy is important. (root or other)
The best way to do it is to copy it with your root account and give permissions afterwards to anybody on the copied files.
If you're a linux newbie I believe konqueror will do the trick for you.
Afterwards just use the linux binary (can be downloaded from my website ) and read the manual.
