hi i've been trying to get an old game (Dune 2) which i used to play through DOS to work on Linux systems, i've not used this before and am in need of an 'idiot's guide to Linux' 
i've gotten as far as having unpacked the file and installed it on terminal, it now to the point of running the Setup.exe 
however when i try to run the setup, i get the following command line error;

  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/ross/Documents/Dune/DUNE2/SETUP.EXE or
          /home/ross/Documents/Dune/DUNE2/SETUP.EXE.zip, and cannot find /home/ross/Documents/Dune/DUNE2/SETUP.EXE.ZIP, period.

Anyone able to help with this?
