I've had success running a few old games - Birthright installed, played
& exited properly. Ditto for both Starcraft versions. I have yet to get
Sacrifice (critical in my opinion ;) or Arcanum to run, though.
I've had a few games that looked like they installed+played right, but
little things didn't work, like double-clicking in Capitalism+.
My win98se partition may not die yet, but I can do everything else but
subtitle ripping with Linux ;)
(Hmm..got to try Planescape:Torment and my Baldur's Gate collection..)
