    Not possible. You might be able to play BF1942 in WiNE or you could emulate Windows in VMWare. Look at shn's pinned guide.

    If you want alternative software, look for a post by a guy named LSA and click on his sig.

    domt know about the codecs but you can get a program called wine that allows you to emulate windows prograns but it is a bit hit or miss as to whether the games you want will be playable

    PS you can dual boot windows and linux which allows you to select which os you want on boot

    ok i know that there is a way to get all of my movies to play in linux cause i got this one distro if knoppix that can play all my movies however i cant use that all the time as that distro is in a diff language and cant get wine to work right with it

    as for 1942 there is a app for linux called wineX it enables you to play alot of games that are popular



    what i need to know is what linux media players do i need to play divx, xvid, mpg, mpeg, avi, mov, ram, and wmv. that last one i dont really need so much since its a windows standard

    as for wineX i need to know how to set it up so that i can play 1942 with it. I know it supports 1942 cause it says they updated it to be more compatible with the game on their site.

    dual booting i am trying to stay away from as its sometimes very difficult to dual boot from one hdd every time that i have tired it fails miserably and i loose lots of data.

    more help plz linux gurus

    Install the game using winex like this

    Code:
    winex3 /pathtogame/lalal/install.exe
    then if it installs correctly try to run the game the same way but just replace the install.exe with game executable
