When FOM has installed run it and perform a complete check. You can now either click Start to patch through the launcher or you can quit the launcher and extract the any patches from your Windows installation to ~/.wine/drive_c/"Program Files/Face of Mankind/PatchTmp/Download". If you go with the latter run the launcher again and the patches will be installed without downloading.

Another suggestion (not tried) is to turn on virtual desktop in winecfg.
