Well, currently linux/solaris/bsd has the option. Mac is detected and
forced to use XP. Ideally, there shouldn't be a need to use different
versions, the install should work on all OS's (actually, in a perfect
world, it wouldn't be needed at all ;-)).

There's now a stub dxdiag.exe in wine, so it's not hugely important to
use the native one, to get games to work. I'm not worried about
getting a perfect install of directx9, I just want to know which one
is 'better' or more helpful to applications that want it for some
