Check out this website for installers which will allow you to install games for Windows on your Linux system. Some installers are fullly working (meaning that the game works without a problem), others are still in beta (meaning that the game might work and/or that some features aren't working).

Nice
I always use PlayOnLinux
PlayOnLinux

It is based on Wine and you can easy select a lot of games/programs.
You can download the yum package, or you can add the following repo

[playonlinux]
name=PlayOnLinux Official repository
baseurl=http://rpm.playonlinux.com/fedora/yum/base
enable=1
gpgcheck=0
gpgkey=http://rpm.playonlinux.com/public.gpg

I have been poking around with Quake and Quake 2 in the past and both worked great wink.gif

I frequently play Quake 4 (multiplayer only of course!) and greatly thank id Software for releasing the game for Linux as well. If you want a good, native game for Linux, buy a copy of Quake 4 and grab the Linux installer from their site. Works flawlessly.
