Oh, but Duke Nukem works on Linux!

Just get the latest stable version of DosEmu + FreeDos
(http://www.dosemu.org/) and install DOS Duke Nukem. If you don't mind
game being slow, you might also try DosBox (http://dosbox.sf.net/) which
has better sound support but as it emulates the CPU it's much slower.

I've bought several great budget DOS game titles because of this: GTA 1,
Worms 1, Screamer Rally... (disclaimer: I know both DOS and Linux and
installing things is not a problem for me. Those who want it easiest, can
try DosBox.)

Btw. I've also transferred several great old games from my old Atari ST
(in the closet :-)) to Linux and am using them with the Hatari emulator
(http://hatari.sf.net/). Note that you need an original Atari for the TOS
image because the GPL version of TOS (http://emutos.sf.net/) is not
compatible with most of Atari games (and definately not with any of the
old-skool demos).

Or you could download 'Duke Nukem for Linux' (original game required).
