I changed from Windows XP Pro to Fedora Core 3 about 2 to 3 weeks ago, and im loving it. But the thing is, I'm missing my games, like Doom3.

So, Is it possible to get these games to work on Fedora Core 3?

I have a default install and a trial version of cross over office (which im trying to figure out how to uninstall it)

Yes you can play Doom 3 and Quake 3 and Unreal Tornament and many others if your system hardware can handle it of course. Here's a nice site to get you started:

http://www.linuxgames.com

there are games at http://www.libsdl.org also.

And if you want to run Microsoft Windows applications on Linux you can check out the link in my signature for WINE for more info about that.

Hey, Thanks.

But that site is a little hard to navigate... Where do I find what I want on it?

And which link in your sig? Your sig is full of them.

How do i uninstall crossover anyway?

Sorry about that. I have different signatures on many Linux forums I belong to. I got this one mixed up with another one I have.

The site for WINE is http://www.winehq.org

That linuxgames site, I can't find any information about Doom3.

If you type "doom 3" into the News Search box on the left it will take to every item about Doom 3.

If you want the direct route here's the link which I found by searching for "doom 3 linux" with Google.com
