32 bit wine in slack 64

The only reason I want 32-bit compatibility is so I can run games under wine. Like, Baldurs Gate, I don't care about Crysis or whatever. I know similar threads have been posted, but I'm really not sure the best way to go about this. For one, I can't seem to find the 32-bit compatibility libraries for Slackware.

I'm thinking along the lines of:

1) install 32bit compatibility libraries
2) install 32 bit wine
3) install 32 bit nvidia opengl libraries
4) install windows apps
5) hopefully use them

Is it really that simple?

Or is all this really necessary:

That seems like I have to replace the packages already in my system. Is there a multilib version of slack13?

Yes you need ALien Bob's multilib packages to use wine. But the process is really easy, and you can trust his packages.
