For what, exactly?

For most Loki ports like Tribes 2, you must buy the Linux version. However, for games like Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament 2003, there are installers available for downlaod for Linux. You use the "Windows" CDs to install the game. Same goes for Quake 3. Download the point release and copy the pak0.pak file from the CD. The NeverWinter Nights port will also be done with an installer for Linux.
