Oh! My apologies, forgot to mention: PAE kernel. I've Fallout 3 running on my laptop, which I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3. I updated Fallout 3 to 1.7 on the laptop and it runs without a hitch, albeit slowly.

Glad to hear you have it running on your laptop system. As for your other system where you are experiencing problems. It is because the 1.7 patch MUST have the game for windows live (gfwl) client installed. If the gfwl client is not installed correctly then the 1.7 patch will break and hence fallout will break.
Try the following suggestions below :-
When you were following the steps above, and you downloaded the msasn1.dll and put it into your system32 folder, did you also override it in winecfg? You have to do this manually. Open your winecfg, go to the libraries tab and add msasn1.dll to override it. The gfwl client needs the msasn1.dll to be present and set override in winecfg. I have edited the HOWTO above to include this step.
Also, did you see my note about possibly having to switch wine to Windows 7 during the gfwl client bit?
Also if you downloaded the patch using the link on the HOWTO it will have downloaded the US version. If you are outside North America you need to download the non US version. I have edited the HOWTO above to give a link to both the US and non US versions now. Download the one that is appropriate to you.
Finally make sure you are doing this on a clean wine install. Make sure if you remove wine to reinstall it you also MANUALLY delete the .wine and .winetrickscache folders in your Home folder.
Try these suggestions and you can always come back for more help is needs be.
