I think that people may be missing my point. I already use the Linux driver 
for Linux applications, but when trying to run Windows applications using 
Wine it won't work because Wine can't use the sound card.

You can't specify the Linux driver for Wine, can you?

If so, what do you put in the Wine config file?
