Just one. If you manage to get two installed at the same time they won't work (including combos of winex/wine). Pick the one with the most recent date on it. Winex works better than wine with games... but it costs $$$ (I think that many per month). I think you can download it free, but it's hard to find. Take a look at www.frankscorner.org .
