(another) wine problem

I've been trying to run Half-Life on Linux using wine for about the past month. Though my thread is not to whine about how hard wine (wow a pun) is to get working, it's a question about installing the 1110 half-life patch. When I try to install it with wine, with about 15 seconds left in the install it says "The file C:/WINDOWS/TrackerNET.dll could not be opened. Please check that your disc is not full and that you have access to the destination directory." I did a search on my system and couldn't find it anywhere. I'm installing this from a burned copy of my cd, which i lost. I'm not sure if that is the problem, or what.

Also, when I try to get America's Army to work i get this error msg: err:virtual:map_image Standard load address for a Win32 program (0x00400000) not available - security-patched kernel ?

what's up with that?

thanks in advance

*edit* As a side note, I've also tried deleting my half-life and reinstalling it but that still doesn't work. I assumed that half-life from the cd installs TrackerNET.dll, but my dad installed it on his windows computer and can't find it anywhere.

To put it simply: Wine is terrible at running directx / direct3d based games. It can sometimes run opengl rendering well enough (Half-Life), but if you want to get games to work with any consistency I recommend getting games with native linux binaries, or look into WineX ( WineX also has much better support for windows installers as well. Good luck

transgaming will charge for the download, but you
can get cvs access for free.
as a newbie you probably don't know what cvs is,
but for your purposes, it is a way to download the
current version of the source code, and easily update
it without downloading the whole thing again.
cvs instructions are on their site.

Thanks I'll try it out right now. I'm not a complete nub-i've had a little experience with cvs.
