Are you sure that your sound is set up correctly?  Are you sure it's
compatable with wine's implementation of DirectSound?  And have you any
debug logs, or have you contacted wine-devel?  Try looking for
information on logging in programs on wine; it involves using the
command line (i.e. xterm) to run wine.

BTW, Are these games known to work on any prior setups (i.e. older
kernels or older wines)?  And can you give us an exact dated version,
since debian and wine just released new packages?  You can run "dpkg -l
| grep 'wine'" (or use "dpkg -l | less" or "dpkg -l | more" and hand
search for wine) and look for your installed version of wine, it's
usually a date like 20040813 followed by some things.

You can also consider going to www.winehq.com and installing from
source, or manaully building a custom deb from source... look on google
for how to do the latter.
