Running FS9 on Linux?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I have only one computer, and thats for working, and I want another dedicated to flightsimming and gaming. I am currently almost broke, but I do have a PS2 with Linux kit. So, can FS9 somehow run on Linux? I am aware that for Windows 2000 and XP it takes 128 MB RAM and for 98 and ME, it takes 64. If it works on linux (I hope so), how much RAM would it take?

Maybe Ill try to make a dual boot system like if you want to run windows on a mac.

This holiday season I made an attempt to go all linux. I tried cedega and wine with FS but no luck. I also had many many problems with other games too.
