As for "wine" in itself, it has very little compatibility with windows games and applications.
CrossOver IS WINE....

Quick question though, will CrossOver run "The Sims 2"? If you don't know then thats ok.

Aman,

Download the ISO from the following link.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/files/#close

and burn it to a CD as an image.
http://www.linux.com/news/software/a...nd-iso-burning
See topic "Burning images" in that link.

Then when you restart the computer insert the CD and follow the instructions.

EDIT
And read the following tutorial too:
