    youll need to setup WineX.

    I''m not sure how well it works though as I have never tried it and I dont have linux on any of of my systems rght now. It was on my laptop till it caught fire :worried: might be a sign from Billy Bob Gates not to dual boot his OS with another.

    to tell ya the truth your pretty screwed for linux use of any HL game. they are taking down the WON server VERY shortly, so steam is mandatory. I don't even run my HL game servers in linux anymore as the linux version of the steam and HLDS suck compared to the Windows one.

    meh, jsut dual boot a smaller copy of windows. like perhaps a stripped down windows 98 or 2000. should hog much space on your hard drive and will let ya get the best of both worlds

    I know when I installed redhat 9 it even installs a boot loader program-thinger that lets you choose between multiple OSes. Might be usefull If you partition off a section of the HDD for each OS to keep them seperate. Mka e sure to make the windows partition FAT32 if you want the linux partition to be able to read it. I think the boot loader program might auto detect the windows install if its alreay setup before the linux install, that would make it easier to set it all up. I wouldnt know though, I installed redhat on my laptop and did have a windows install to dual boot with at the time.
