First things first, you need at least Wine 1.1.17. To upgrade/install the latest version of Wine.

Update/Install Wine 1.1.17 or higher

1. Remove the wine that comes with Ubuntu (if you've installed it)

sudo apt-get remove wine

2. Open a terminal and type:

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

3. Type:

sudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list

4. Add one of the following to your sources.list

## Wine, Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt hardy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt hardy main

## Wine, Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt gutsy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt gutsy main

deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main

## Wine, Ubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06)

deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main

5. Type the following:

sudo apt-get update

6. Type the following:

sudo apt-get upgrade

7. To install wine either type:

sudo apt-get install wine

Or by using the Synaptic Package Manager under System->Administration.

Installing WoW

Depending on if your using CD's or DVD's there are 2 different mounting procedures for each disk you have.

If the installation disk is a CD

sudo umount /media/cdrom0

sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0 -t iso9660 -o ro,user,unhide,uid=`id -u`

If the installation disk is a DVD

sudo umount /media/cdrom0

sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom -t udf -o ro,user,unhide,uid=`id -u`

Every time you switch your disks out, you must un-mount then re-mount them with the appropriate command. This ensures all hidden files on the disk that are necessary to install are available for the installer.exe

If you get a black screen in game
When I set my effects down to low it fixed it. This is as far as I go w/ this tutorial, beyond this good luck.
