directX7 in wine?

Does anyone know how to make wine use DX7? Is there a way to install DX7 in wine?Ive been trying to get 3dmark2000 to run on my linux box but im getting the error that says I need to have DX7 compatible card. So how do I get it to think DX7 is installed?

I believe there is no DirectX compatibility in linux and wine is just an emmulator, it uses openGL libs, but I am not sure, cause somehow winex got MS games to work under linux.
