Ah! sorry, to explain it's now referred to as a ROM, for the emulators.
Whoever, has taken the code off the tapes/plugin cartridges/CD's etc and
created a digital file with the extension .rom. This is now how the
"games" are distributed for the emulators, no more hardware involved.
So the only place on today's modern hardware, where you plug the ROM in,
is in the emulators folder. Just do a Google search for "Emulator game
ROM's, and you'll understand what I am on about.

No, no port to Linux or Windows, but you can use an emulator, such as on
this webpage, they can run on Windows and Linux
http://www.atariage.com/2600/emulation/, (and many webpages like it,
just Google Atari Emulator) and then acquire the Eastern Front ROM. Plus
depending on which Linux distro you use, if you use Linux, you can find
many emulators on the install disk waiting to be installed. All I can
say at the moment, the emulators are legal but to acquire the ROM is
not, as they still retain copyright.
But if you can figure it out from here, you are on your way.
I don't remember a ROM--it seems to me that the game came on
either tape or CD, or maybe floppy, and I remember it took forever to
load. What would you do with a ROM on a modern computer system? Where
would you plug it in?
