    From the Official EA site:

    PLEASE NOTE BEFORE DOWNLOAD:
    We are providing the ISO image of C&C for both the GDI and Nod discs. In order for the original C&C to run on Windows XP, you will need to burn the ISO image onto a CD with a CD Burner and any "CD Burning Software" such as Nero, Alcohol, etc. There are also a few extra steps in order to make the original C&C run on Windows XP after you burn it to CD. Please click the link below for the exact instructions after you download both files!

    Has anyone gotten it to install yet? I'm not having much luck here. It seems the installer can't sense the "CD" in the drive, either because of wine or in spite of it. I'll try it out some more later, I guess.

    If you're mounting the ISO, chmod the loop device the ISO is mounted on to 777.

    That doesn't seem to work. I'm told it's a read-only filesystem, even if I add -o rw to the mount command. Strange. I've found other sites elsewhere that suggest it should install almost automatically. I wonder if I got a corrupted download. ...

    You might also have to add the ISO mount point to Wine drives, if you haven't already. The best bet is to burn, if you wish to spare the trouble.

    EDIT: Outlining my steps:

    1. sudo chmod 777 /dev/loop0
    2. Check winecfg drives, add ISO mount point (I also added /dev/loop0 just in case).
    3. mount the ISO on the mount point
    4. launch seutp

    That did the trick; thanks. I wondered why I was having such trouble with a game from 12 years ago. ...

    The reason why the installer fails is that the installer tries to directly access the loopback device. With 0660 root/disk, that won't work out very well.

    In 1997, a band of developers that would come to be known as Rockstar North and Rockstar Games released the original Grand Theft Auto on an unsuspecting public. The groundbreaking non-linear urban crime game shook up a complacent game industry with its irreverent gameplay, humor and style- and a phenomenon was born.

    We are now offering this classic progenitor of the Rockstar Games lineage as the first in a recurring series of Rockstar PC game downloads, absolutely free of charge. It's a chance for new fans to experience the roots of Rockstar as well as our way of saying thank you to our long-time supporters feeling that pang of nostalgia. Simply fill out the form below and check your email for a direct link to the file - we've even optimized the game for play on the latest and greatest computers. Now, don't say we never gave you anything.

    Grand Theft Auto Warning/Disclaimer:

    # This version of Grand Theft Auto is modified from its original version to enable support for modern PC's and current Microsoft ® Windows ® platforms. However, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that Grand Theft Auto will work correctly on your PC. Installation and execution of this software is entirely at your own risk.

    # Grand Theft Auto Important Notes - Please read the following before downloading and installing:

    # The size of this file is 328 MB.

    # Due to overwhelming response, we have had to limit the number of concurrent connections to our download server. If you receive an error page, please try again later.

    # This game requires the latest version of DirectX to run. If you do not have the latest version of DirectX installed on your system, you may download it from http://www.microsoft.com/directx.

    # After downloading Grand Theft Auto, double-click on the file (GTAInstaller.exe).

    # The Install program will start; follow the on-screen install instructions and choose where you would like to install Grand Theft Auto.

    # Grand Theft Auto will then be installed and a program group created for you in "START > PROGRAMS > Rockstar Games > GTA".

    # You will NEED to run "GTA Settings" from the Program Menu BEFORE running the game for the first time.

    # In GTA Settings you can customize your control options and select a language (English is default).

    # Once you are done with GTA settings, choose "Save" to save your settings.

    # You can now run Grand Theft Auto! Just click on "START > PROGRAMS > Rockstar Games > GTA > GRAND THEFT AUTO" to start.

    # Once in-game you can change the resolution by pressing 'F11' and choosing any of the listed resolutions.

    # If you experience choppy or jerky gameplay, try turning the frame limiter off by pressing 'F8'. You may need to then increase your resolution to slow the game down, but it should play smoothly.
