RE: Installing & Nvidia GT8800 - observations

I have a Intel Q6600 with a Nvidia 8800GT and Debian Lenny.
I installed Wine 1.1.26 to see if it was just the old version under which it doesn't work.
I tried all your comments on how to get the game to work but it doesn't.
When installing DirectX i got an error about mscoree.dll
(even though i copied mscoree.dll from an existing winxp installation and set it to native, also tried to register the dll with regserv) but it installs anyway and dxdiag shows an installed directx 9.0c (last version from march 2009). I don't think that this is why the game doesn't work.
(i set dbghelp.dll to native and copied the patch)
At first i got some sound error, pcm and such but i got rid of it by checking all possible sound devices in the wine config.
