Would be worth trying, however wine couldn't probably solve the issue because no one will install a windowmanager and lots of gui-crap on his linux server just for emulating a battlefront server.

A better idea might be vmplayer. You can setup a whole windows-enviroment running on your linux machine (no that's not as in emulating) but you'd still have to install lots of gui-stuff in order to run vmpayer, I think.
Anyone ever tried that ?
