Your best bet is to either post specific questions here, or if you prefer chat based tech support to forums based, use IRC. Sorry trickykid
I don't know of any people who do one to one adopt-a-newbie style tech support.
Wine is still alpha software. You can get good results out of it, but it takes some experience to setup correctly. Even then, not all apps work with it, it's a complete reimplementation of the API parts of Windows, and as such is very big and complex. It's best to either stick to apps that are known to work well in Wine, or better yet use native apps.
If you're having hardware issues, please post specific info. Driver installation should not be something you need do on a decent distro, Redhat, SuSE, Mandrake will all do the majority of driver legwork for you if the hardware is supported. The exceptions to this are the nVidia drivers and some modems.
