Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)
I just realized, I am a 32 bit dinosaur

Sorry for the confusion if I'm way off.
Could work, but definitely only with pretty low video settings. Try it out and please post your results. Remember that Wine is still in active development, and there are no guarantees. It may or may not deliver to your expectations.
I see some of the icons are corrupt, so please try this fix: http://www.wowwiki.com/Linux/Wine#Corrupt_panel_icons
I have a Nvidia card myself, but to the best of my knowledge, the proprietary ATI drivers are supposed to have better 3d game support. Try enabling them in the restricted drivers module in Feisty or use this howto: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI
If those two methods fail you, then there is a third way of installing these drivers, it's called the Envy script, by Alberto Milone, but it is a bit controversial, as it is not a official project. It may be an easy option if the two others options don't work out for you: http://www.albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html
Personally I like Envy so much, I only use it. It has actually saved me a few times when manual tweaking and the restricted driver module have failed me. Envy hasn't failed me yet
