    You have to install the game in linux using WINE or CEDEGA. Wine is installed already in SABAYON, CEDEGA is a subscription service about 5 bucks per month. Then you play it.
    I installed Sabayon 3.4e 32bit on my nephews today. It's a new system with a Intel dual core whatever, has 2 gigs, a Nvidia 8800GTS card with 320mb onboard. I'm downloading the 64 bit version as I type on my server to install it when done.
    I used the live dvd partition manager (GParted with GUI) to resize the 500gig single partion drive, lol. It works with 'sliders' so it is SUPER intuitive for the newbie. In the live environment, it has an icon on the desktop, 'Partition Manager'. I defragged first with a 3rd party defragger I've used for years, then booted up the Sabayon 3.4e live DVD, scooted the winderZ partition back about 60gigs, made an Extended partition, then edited it to have about 140mb for a /boot, 55gig for / and 2gig for swap (you can go with 512mb, linux rarely uses swap anyway) but we want to test this puppy with a lot of scenarios later on. Anywho, it is so simple to do, ya gotta try it.
    If you are sKeeRt, then just use the live dvd. He played games off it all day yesterday. I am TRYING to get 3d enabled on an older system of his with a ATI 9800 card. The forums tell ya how/what works and so on. Download and burn the dvd from the Virginia Teck mirror, it's the fastest on this side of the pond. But only about 270 KB/s so it will yake about 4 hours.
    If ya have a 64bit system use the 64bit version. Might as well use what ya paid for. Enough ramblin', gonna lay down and play with my puter.
    ps compiz will rock ter socks, it's too cool!
