you could mount your iso images through the loopback device (it has to be 
enabled in the kernel).

mount /isos/serioussam.iso /mnt -t iso9660 -o loop=/dev/loop0

Then you setup your wine.conf for this drive:

[Drive X]
"Path" = "/mnt"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "Serious Sam"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
; Don't know if you have to set "Device", just try it
"Device" = "/dev/loop0"
