Tested in 32-bit WINE set to Windows 98 with DirectX9 installed via winetricks. Instructions: mount the ISO file and run the executable. Some games use MIDI (the launcher's main menu does too for background music), so you'll have to set it up if using Linux and WINE. Some games may need either DirectX or DOSBox to run, so have 'em installed too. All games run directly from the CD, there's no need to install anything. Not all games are guaranteed to work.
