The WineHQ AppDB has comprehensive information on setting up and running WoW under Wine. See

EDIT: From what I remember from when I played it, Blizzard's forums have several very useful threads on installing and running WoW under Wine. This appears to be the latest on their European forums

You might consider installing VMPlayer (from WMware) or some similar system virtualization tool. This would still require to have a full Windows system installed within the virtual environment, but will give better results and compatibility then Wine (mostly). Even so, you would have both Windows and Linux without rebooting.
