Mount it with iso9660. Make sure you've got Joliet extensions in your
kernel. Basically, treat it like a very large CD-ROM.

You need a valid and unique CD key for each machine online.

I can't speak for windows, but you _CAN_ coerce the Linux installer to run
over NFS (or from a .iso mounted on the loopback device...please don't
pirate the game.)

The game will _not_ work on Windows if the disc isn't in the drive, and
NFS/SMB won't help. We don't do a disc check of any sort on Linux, but you
still need a valid and unique CD key. Please don't pirate the game.
