What works

xnews 5.08 - Downloaded and unziped the zip right on my desktop, right clicked on the .exe, selected to open and type wine. Xnews opened right up no problems.

grabit 1.5.3 - Downloaded and ran the .exe using wine. No problems.

Guild wars - Download and installed the client. Guild wars loaded to the logon screen then got really laggy. Probably because Im using a geforce 2 :) and its downloading new files.
