directx and activex are not supported, even with wine.
so I doubt that it will work.
if you can run wine and get the game working, you will be lucky, the configure of wine was right.

Best bet is for just look for the games that already run on linux. Many Windoze games also have a linux version.

http://www.lokigames.com/
http://linuxreviews.org/
http://linuxreviews.org/games/classics/
http://www.linux-gamers.net/

just to list a few sites to check. Will have better luck with this route than trying to get the win version to run on the nix.

Hey jmsmikhail, take the time to rate the answers that people were nice enough to post to try to help with your problem.

If they didn't solve your problem, then select denied. At least it is concidered closed then,

It is called concideration, and if you don't show it people will remember the next time you post.
