I am certainly not an expert on that part, but as far as I know, as a 
general rule a Windows device driver will not work in Wine (there are 
some very limited exceptions).

Unfortunately, that is sometimes required. However, as a general rule, I 
think you will find that the people most knowledgable about Wine will be 
using a current CVS from winehq. Yes, that requires a bit of additional 
effort to setup and learn, but once setup, it is very easy to use and 
upgrade with. In my case, current CVS on Redhat 7.3.
