Also, make sure you have wine configured with the appropriate version of Windows that the game was meant for.

In a terminal, type

winecfg

and then select the exe for each game. Then you can set the cd drive so it's cdrom0 or whatever under drives, and make sure windows xp is the os selected. Now, try and open it from the direct exe, and tell what happens. If there's an error, post what it says for everyone (not me) to figure it out.

thanks,
