Unhappy People i need help with installing programs! Please.

I realy need help with linux. My windows doesnt work, and my boot CD of Windows
has been crushed. So all a have now is Linux Mandrake 9.1. I installed it
2 days ago. First, i have one question. How to install something on Linux. When I try to
install something it asks someting like: open with which application. I tried everything,
but it just doesnt work. All I know on Linux is how to go on Internet. My nex question is:
are there any games for Linux. I know that it doesnt go with Windows games, but ive never
heard for games that works on Linux. Thats all for now. THANKS!
