I just got Ubuntu installed yesterday and the last thing I need to cast out Vista/XP is to get my MMO golf game, Albatross18 (http://www.albatross18.com), installed. I know that there is a program called WINE that can run Windows programs under a Linux distro. Can anyone help me get that setup? I barely know how to use the Terminal, so please use n00b-friendly words.

Unfortunately they have no Linux client and appdb.winehq.org rates the game compatibility as "garbage" - as low as it gets.

Edit: it's because of a "game guard" thing they use that's really crappy. Maplestory uses it too and it makes wine unable to run it.

Someone got it running, but they refuse to disclose how they did it. Probably had to hack GameGuard, which would get them banned.
below is the video of it running under linux:
