Setting Up Wine

seeing that i am new to the linux scene, i could really use some help in running wine...Im using RedHat 8.0, and really all i want to do for now is play some half-life.
So lets start with a simple question; what should i use?
wine? wineX or......
next what do i need to do to get it going?
like are there any step by step instructions on the net somewhere?
thanks any help would be appreciated

WineX has been, and still is being, developed specifically to be more DirectX 'compliant', so if you want games, I would suggest WineX.
