"err:virtual:map_image Standard load address for a Win32 program (0x00400000) not available - security-patched kernel ?
wine: could not load L"C:\\SIERRA\\Half-Life\\hl.exe" as Win32 binary"

Try this "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield" before "wine hl.exe"
It's something about some fedora buffer overflow thing...
