you will have to install either Wine or Cedega (formally known as WineX) to even attempt
to run a windows native game under linux ...
what game is it exactly ? cause there could be a trick to getting it to work ..
and keep in mind that Wine is still in its alpha stages, so its not guarunteed that the game
will run ... but Cedega has support for over 300 games ... so depending on the game, it
may or may not work ...

You need cedega (winex). It's cool. Get point2play as well. It makes it easy. And it's cheap... ($15 minimum)

I've been running some of my old faves like jedi knight 1 & 2 and half life and counterstrike: condition zero.

You'll need the room in your home directory to install them... Check the list at transgaming to see what runs and how well it runs... openGL games generally work best...
