[Wine] Never had an app work in WINE

I have been a Linux user off and on for about 10 years. In that time I have never been able to make a single app work (other than Notepad) with WINE, even the ones that AppDB claims work perfectly. This is true on 6 different machines running Kubuntu, Slackware, OpenSUSE, and Red Hat & Fedora.
What gives? I've followed all of the documentation to a "T". Searches only return vague, incomplete answers like "copy this file" without telling where to copy it to! What the H-E-Double-Chopsticks am I missing? It can't possibly be so complicated that I need to understand Windows and DirectX inside out, can it? This is my only hurdle to chucking Windows in the trash, but I just cannot get there. Can anyone point me to some better documentation (books, online docs, anything at all)? Any better way to learn what I'm doing?
