Trying to run NWN and Starcraft, among others, on Lindows

No need to flame Lindows here if you want. I personally dont care if you like it or not, I have agreed with myself to fight with it until I get it where I want it. Since I am new to Linux in any form and stubborn as hell, I will probably be bugging alot of people in here.

I have apt-get'ted wine. How do I run an install from a Windows disk on a Linux Distro? How do I use programs that I installed through apt-get at all. I cant find the "start" file anywhere?

Anybody help?

Check out my NWN guide over here in this thread.
It is located on the 2nd page of my guide.
As for Starcraft you may need more than wine, maybe wineX. I am not into the whole emulation factor though so someone may point you in the right direction for that game.
