Just be aware that the free CVS version of Cedega does *not* include the proprietary DirectX modules, that are needed to play most games.

To get those, you have to subscribe, at http://www.transgaming.com.

Well, Cedega *is* based on Wine, with added DirectX support modules. If a game requires DirectX, chances are it won't work at all in Wine.
