I can't name them all, it's sort of hit-and miss for windows games on WINE.
There are like a gazillion free open source games that you can get through the new GUI package manager, so it really shouldn't be a problem.

Is it a P4 HT?

Code:
sudo apt-get install wine
Assuming you're using Ubuntu/Debian. Typing that at a terminal will result in you being asked for your password, then being asked if you want to install Wine. Once Wine is installed, change directory to your CD-ROM drive (for example, mine is mounted at /media/cdrom) and use Wine to run the setup.

Code:
cd /media/cdrom
wine setup
Of course, the above commands will only work if your CD-ROM drive is mounted at /media/cdrom and the game's installer file is called 'setup'. If they're different, you'll have to type in their actual values.
