I untarred the tarball, cd to wine-2001xxxx (untarred dir) then do
it compiles and sets all config files up for you.  It worked for me, I
even play Half-Life with it.  You are sure you added load "glx" (under
load "dbe") and changed "nv" to "nvidia" in your XF86Config-4 file.  All
should work after that.
