One live DVD, one ton of Linux games

Having just returned from the Philippines where I set up an eight computer internet cafe I can assure you that the games that are popular at present ARE NOT on this disk. The on line game players are wanting to play MMORPG such as World of Warcraft variants and CONQUER and these are Windows based games. My intent had been to only use Mandriva 2008.1 Power Pack on all the computers but I set up four of them as DUAL BOOT with XP so that hard core online gamers could play their favorite games on at least four of the machines while casual chat and web surfers could use Linux for that purpose. To pay $100 a copy for XP was not something I had planned but it was none the less a necessity for the sake of the cafe being popular among high school aged on line gamers. Reality is not always what we wish it to be and this is an example of that for me. I nonetheless bought four XP disks for that purpose.
