Have you gotten the game to run in Linux? If so, how? I've tried using WINE in Ubuntu 10 with no luck. I've tried getting Hardwar to run under Linux a few times in the past and never got past the installation. You'd be my hero for life if you could get Hardwar running under Linux.
Getting it running on linux was simple, I simply downloaded the demo and patch (UIL6) and ran it using wine-1.2.2. I used winecfg to change both the patcher and setup.exe to win2000 compatibility, but I don't think it matters.
I had to install it on a flash drive to prevent usable space errors, and then move it over to program files. The program would complain and try to patch again since the path was different, but I used regedit to modify all references to the old path to the new one.
It runs with some fairly terrible color bugs, but since it's going to be a server I doubt that matters. I'm currently trying to compile msgcv9.c, since there are no exe's available. The computer I'm using is just a box in my living room, if there's need I could get it on a vps for a while (couple years)
