I'm not sure if this is what you're after, but I used to use Cedega for
some games. It's worth is a bit patchy though.... If games are going to
be a problem, dual boot the machine and put Edubuntu as the primary boot
option. Windows is only really good for games after all (thats all my
windows box is used for really!).
