Linux newbie trying to play with WINE

Hi, I'm new here so I hope I posted in the right section.

My problem concerns wine/cd drive (I think). I install Prey, the installation completes successfully, but when I try to run it I get a dialogue box that says I am missing an "alsi layer". When I try to install Counter Strike, the installation pops up a dialogue box with "a fatal error has occured" I read the terminal and the installation program is looking for files on the second and third discs without ever prompting for a disc change. I am not sure if these problems are related, but googling has shown me that both these games should run under WINE right out of the box

I can already hear somebody saying "games are for windows" but I like to learn a little something by going the difficult way

More info.

There is a linux games section in the forums under software that might get more attention for the question you asked. Might try googling for how people have gotten it to run and watch the version of wine they are using. Some wine versions work better for certain games than others.

Need to check the wine config to make sure you have your drives setup and save the settings. could possibly be one of the problems you are having.

Also need the distro you are running and the wine version to be able to be of more help.
