Just wanted to confirm my problem, I finally had a chance to play around with
another computer and steam account, so I can be more specific now. It turns out
it is somehow specific to my account, though i haven't yet figured out why. My
brother also purchased Garry's Mod through steam, and for his account, it works.
I made some little screenies just for detail.

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b292/beg1689/windows.png - This is my steam
account in Windowz XP (through VMware)

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b292/beg1689/linux.png - This is my account
again, running through wine.

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b292/beg1689/josh.png - This is my brothers
account, on the same computer with the same fresh wine install.

These shots were taken in Ubuntu 6.10, Wine 0.9.33.
So my point is, for some strange reason Wine won't let ME specifically use my
games purchased through steam. Even though they obviously work, even in VMware
and through another account. So, it must not be something with my setup. Also I
get the same results running on my brothers computer, also running Ubuntu 6.10
(I recently converted my entire family to Ubuntu, except my father which still
likes Windowz 98 for some reason...)

Also I ran all three setups (VMware my account, Wine my account, Wine other
account) several times with full wine/system restarts in between to make sure I
wasn't seeing any first-run issues like Ken mentioned above. Sorry for babbling
on so long :)
