wine help!

I am really getting used to linux but i have a dual boot system solely for the purpose of gaming. Windows is otherwise useless. Well, i got wine. My intent is to be able to play starcraft with my friends while using linux. I have been reading all of their FAQs and everything but i need some help. So i downloaded the appropriate rpm file (and the debug rpm) and installed them. So far so good. I pop in starcraft it loads, i click the setup.exe file, it installs. YEAH! Ok so know i click on "play". It says something about an error and that the disk isnt in the drive(cant read it all cause the window is cut off). I am going to try a few more times but i think i am missing something. Please help i know nothing about this application. I just need somebody to walk me through this the first time. I think i installed correctly just using the rpms. I did try to run an exe in the terminal and i think it did configuration there. I am using the latest version whatever that is. Thanks for listening.

Best bet is to try out cedeaga (wineX) (and point2play) at It'll cost $15-$30 but worth it. Between crossover and winex, I've pretty much dropped windows for everything, including games. Was playing a lan game of counterstrike: condition zero last night with cedega. The original starcraft is supposed to work fine on cedega, according to the databse...
