im unfamiliar with the program wine

Yep wine does that. There should be some compatibility list somewhere but it might be a hassle getting some things working. There are linux irc clients out there too, they might be easier to use instead of mirc via wine.

Use KVIrc instead of using wine to run mirc.

*head spinning* Are people using the term '"other" uses' for DCC? Not that big a secret.
