Translated into English:
War games: Yes, it's true, Wine can run the new DOOM3

Several days ago I installed Mandrake 9.2 and was very impressed with 
Wine. This little program really does wonders. So i said to myself "it 
can run small Windows apps, but there is no way it can run Doom 3".

I did this:
cd /mnt/win_f/Doom3
and wrote "wine Doom3.exe", and what did my eyes see?

Yes, it is Doom3 running on my computer!!! And with pretty nice graphics 
Linux should not be ashamed of, to boost! Only one little detail - the 
in games movies won't work. It probably has something to do with 
Windows' Direct X.

So there you have it. I hope that it will work for you as it has for me!!!!

There is also a screen shot there.

So, if you want me to relay any questions to the user regarding how he 
did it? :-)
