    Need help installing basic games

    I have Grim Fandango and World of Warcraft.

    How do i install these through Wine. I have totally cleaned my computer from any MS products. I do not want to have to revert to the dark side.

    Please help.

    I am not able to mount or figure it out. I used to use ISO buster and Daemon tools.

    How do i get this up and running?

    in linux you can mount an iso image with the command

    Code:
    cd /path_to_the_ISO_file
    sudo mount -o loop ISO_file /media/cdrom
    this way your iso file would be mounted in your cdrom usual mounting point. After that just install wine using synaptic package manager or the command apt-get install wine , and the exe file should be automatically executed by wine when you double click on it. If it's not than right click on the exe file select open with and than choose wine from the programs available.

    And that's about it.
    Debian rulz but Ubuntu it's alright either

    I am still stuck at square one. WOW is playing intro then i get an error and it crashes. Thinking maybe virtual memory was changed when i solo-ed this.

    Ubuntu is the only OS i am using now.
    the icon is still on top fo the desktop, and it launches intro movie. Then crashes.

    4.02 i think.......................
