I have a few Loki games and they play well in FC2, with the following
preparations:

# echo '0' > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield # turn off exec-shield (as
root)
$ LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 { path to game executable } (without the
brackets, of course)

The first line should be run as root (maybe via sudo?), and the second
should be run as your normal user.  This is all I had to do to get
SimCity 3000, Alpha Centauri, and Quake 3 working.
