Follow up to my previous post:
Counter-Strike 1.6 will now play. After a number of reinstalls and tests, I have narrowed down to the problem to one thing: Alsa sound.
I could make Counter-Strike 1.6 work when I ran winecfg and left the sound tab at OSS instead of changing it over to Alsa (which I am currently using). OSS WILL produce sounds correctly, with only a MINOR delay (1-2 ms).
The reason I was trying to get Alsa to work is because I am using a Plantronics Gamecom Pro1 DSP usb headset and am using Alsa as my sound-card. So I thought that I could mitigate that sound delay by running winecfg and setting it to use Alsa. Error.
What does not
winecfg: alsa sound setting along with CS1.6
What was not tested
Any other game with Alsa.
Sound WORKS, but it's just NOT platinum rating because of that delay, but deffinately better than where I rated it last night :-x

The .lnk file that is created after install can be safely deleted. The .lnk file is used by Windows in case any special parameters have been set when an .exe file is run. If you have problems and suspect that you need the .lnk file for any reason, simply go into Steam, and right-click on the game that needs the .lnk file, and select "Create Desktop Shortcut". Â
The above applies to all .lnk files that are Steam based, including steam.lnk.
