I have now been able to look at some errors. It appears that there is a 
problem with mci. I put a post out asking about this that I'll quote here:

"fixme:mci:MCI_LoadMciDriver Couldn't load driver for type MUSIC.
If you don't have a windows installation accessible from Wine,
you perhaps forgot to create a [mci] section in system.ini

1. Where is system.ini?
2. What do I put there? "

I have tried playing with the config file. It was not happy when I 
switched to the alsa driver. Also, I have cludged together a fake 
system.ini that did not help. I noticed that there are several 
mci*.drv's that are absent in fake_windows, yet present in a w98 
installation. Are these works in progress?

No, I have not had success previously with these games. Here is the 
information on
the deb packages. As you can see even unstable is now one month behind
