A question about wine...

Well I got wine running great. Now I go and add a program (half-life) and go to run it. It pops into hl but I get a wierd error and no mouse. Once I'm able to click on the cancel or ok button by constantly clicking and flinging my mouse around it goes into the normal menu, but if I select anything other than quit it stalls and CAD wont even bring my computer to reason so I have to hard reboot it. OK well here's the error:

Could not open MCI file for playback: 266: There is an undetectable problem in loading the specified device driver.

So here are my 2 questions:
[1] I've seen HL running in wine before but am wondering if I just don't have something configured right or do I need to be using wine-x?

[2] If I can make wine run hl how do I go about doing so?

I'm running slack 10 with the 2.6.7 kernel and OSS for sound. If you need any info about the system or whatever just ask ;D. And a great big thankyou to anyone who may help.

EDIT: just found out the name of wine-x has switched to Cedega 4.0.
