    I want to run this Blockland server from my linux box. It's only for windows though, so was wondering if there are any decent progs that can do this.

    Thanks in advance.

    If it runs reliably under wine/cedega then you should be ok, but if all else fails, just run it on a windows machine and save yourself (and your users/players) the grief. VMware would be abysmally slow for all but the most simple of game servers.

    The game itself is only 11mb after all mods are installed. The problem is my dedicated server is running linux, not Windows.

    try wine first
    if it doesnt work, and its a game, try www.transgaming.com if you dont mind the $5 a month
    cedega works very well for me with world of warcraft, i dont know how it will do with servers though
