RE: Can not get game to work

Well, that seems OK. From what I can tell the problem must lie with the drivers crashing. Make sure you have the latest nvidia drivers from your hardware manager or download and install them from the nVidia website here :-
Also, you said you use wine 1.1.44. Make sure you update that to the latest version of 1.2.
Another possibility is that if you did any overrides or tweaks to wine when you were putting on other windows programs. The overrides you used to get them to work may be interfering with Fallout 3. As the majority of the official information here will be for Fallout 3 on a clean wine with no other overrides for other windows programs.
