However, I would be willing to bet that your game will still not install, as the image probably has Windows binaries. To answer your next question check here: http://appdb.winehq.org/

What game is it? If you're successful in your install, knowing the game would be helpful to others later.

Install 'FuriousIsoMount' from synaptic/software manager. I've used this to install a few games in wine which come as mdf install files. Works great. :)

All you do is mount the mdf in furious (or furius, can't remember how it's spelt), and it will have the mounted mdf in your /home/user folder, open, right click exe and open with wine as usual.

Hope that helps. :mrgreen:
