try winex for the games. It is supposed to run games better than wine. you have to buy a subscription (or download it from cvs, but i wouldn't recommend that since you cant seem to get wine working).

WTF is with Mandrake, or more specifically Ark, not being able to open .zip files?! It's getting annoying, and I cant seem to find a lib- package to fix it

Yeah just goto bash/konsole
and type unzip nameofpackage.zip

that'll work.
as for the windows emulator
WineX is indeed good for games.
