first of all im a linux noob, having said that.

heres the story, when running warcraft (war2combat) under wine, the game overall moves very sluggish, and the more units that come to play the more slow it turns out. (this is a 13year old dos game for those who dont know what this is)

I had this problem with ubuntu, so i migrated to a slackware
based distro....

game runs perfect at slackware, (but i cant use slackware as my main OS cuz its not a noob friendly os) even without having to set up any graphic driver..

so i downloaded opensuse
I installed opensuse gnome live cd.
then i installed my nvidia 6800 drivers from nvidia.
then i installed wine via yast
then installed Warcraft 2 (war2combat) via wine

I have disabled desktop effects, the game still runs sluggishly slow and retarded.

help,any ideas?
