First, you can get the WineX sources from CVS, instructions at TransGaming.

Now for quake, you'll need to get the latets patch for linux and just run it. This will create the directory structure, etc. Once done, just copy your pak0.pk3 to the directory (commonly /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3/) where you installed the game. Is that easy.

I'd go with the CVS sources rather than the light version. It will work far better (at least for me it did). Or if you only need rudimentary DirectX support, you could try Wine Classic.

Basically you'll get the newest branch out of CVS (currently version 3.1) and will have a little more control over the configuration.
