You are on a Mac?

You need to start X11 if on Tiger OR you have to tell Wine where the
display is for Leopard or Snow-Leopard.

I highly recommend using a pre-compiled Wine for Mac.  A search of the
forum topics should bring you to the builds that doh123 has.

If I am incorrect, please advise further with the hardware, UNIX/Linux
distribution you are running and the version of Wine you are using.
