Question running games with wine - gta3, 1nsane, quake3 - won't work


though having nvidia-drivers installed correctly and the standard-version of wine, none of these games will work.
quake:
Quote:
cannot load default.cfg
1nsane:
Quote:
fatal: cannot initialize stringtable.
file missing error @ line 0.
gta3:
Quote:
unhandled exception
is there anybody who is able of giving me hints how to fix these things? shall i unpack the pak0.pk3 in quake? i've found some things in google, but none of these issues is displayed complete or i just don't get it. 1nsane is one of my favourite games, i just use games to shut off my brain.

best regards and many thanks
ungua

edit: p.s.: the 1nsane-screenshot shows a phenomenon that occurs rather often: even though i choose to make a screenshot of the whole screen, sometimes the thing i want to have a screenshot of won't appear on the actual file, while it is shown inside this screenshot-program.

edit: i am talking about comments like this:
Quote:
You can install Quake3 Natively on linux. You have been able to for a long time.

You need to install the linux point release and then copy across the pak files from the CD.
do i need to become a member at the linked site to be able to download?
