Hey guys I have just done the install of Ubuntu 8 I am waiting on the disc for 9.2. but my son has games that he plays on my Computer because I have sound. But I was just wondering how do I do an install directly from the disc that he has it does say it is windows and mac compatable do I need to have linux as one of the system requirments? If not how do I do this install the system is set up for Ubuntu I didnt split the hard drive to run 2 seperate operating systems.

Hi steve, first off what is the game your trying to install.

Secondly you may have issues trying to run a windows/mac game on linux. But depending on the game there may be work arounds. However we need a bit more info:

Please include the following:

System information
Video Card

Game information
Name of the game
