X800, he is not asking for a distro... just a general question. Wine & Cedega can run on any distro.

WINE stands for "WINE is not an emulator"

U just don't know how to do it then. Suse has full support for WINE, and I even think that they include WINE in the installation packages.

Some games have patches that you can download to make them run on Linux. Or, you can use WINE, which may get difficult if you are a noob (no offense). Just look on some Linux forum for a guide to setting up WINE or the program you want to run on your distro. Gaming IS possible on Linux! Don't give up!

Nope, you have to install Windows first, because when windows is installed, the MBR is over written. Then, you Install your Linux distro. Usually, with a good distro/ installer it will automatically resize the Windows partition or place Linux on another hard drive. GRUB will be installed (GRand Unified Bootloader) and then, at boot time, you can select from it which OS you want to boot into, Linux or Windows.

If you are talking about WINE, you don't install Windows with WINE. WINE is used to run Windows executables on a Linux operating system. this can be done by running

$ wine name_of_program.exe

(at the command line).
