Tested in 32-bit WINE set to Windows 98 with DirectX9 installed via winetricks. Instructions: unzip and install the preferred games. Mounting the ISO file and running the game installers from there also works. If using Linux and WINE, don't bother with the launcher, it doesn't work. Install games manually instead via their own executables. Some games use MIDI for soundtrack, so you'll have to set it up if using Linux and WINE. Not all games are guaranteed to work.

What you're seeing here is a system recovery DVD for the Gateway MX6448, it has Windows XP Media Center Service Pack 2 pre-installed. This particular computer is a 2006 personal laptop PC, and is one of those "Windows Vista Capable" laptops. You shouldn't need the drivers, as it pre-installs it for you, and as a bonus, the Plus! themes are pre-installed on the disc as well. NOTE: You may use this in VMWare, HyperV, or VirtualBox, as Gateway never locked the BIOS to a specific model,...

Game requires CD (except for multiplayer only on a full install), so leave it mounted while you play. Game uses MIDI for soundtrack, so you'll have to set it up if using Linux and WINE.
