can anybody at least give me a list of the games that are included, that way i can try to install them myself?

ok, i figured it all out

i will provide my solution incase anybody else has a similar issue

if you browse through the files on the bonus disks you will see that all of the .debs for each of the games are located in their own individual directories with all of the dependencies included, also in .deb format


i ended up just searching the repositories for each game individually and installing the versions from the repos instead of the ones on the cd (newer versions)

there were only a few games that i couldn't find in the repos but i just used the .debs for those few and everything worked out great

(with the few .deb's that i did use from the bonus disk, i simply searched for the dependencies individually in synaptic before installing the main game .deb's)
