I have installed a chess client called CClient and use it with wine. Works 
great. Here is how I installed it:
Downloaded it into my Win XP system and installed it there.
When everything was working I booted into Mandrake10 where I previously had 
wine installed. I mounted the WinXP in /mnt/drivec as user root. Then I 
copied the complete CClient directory to my wine directory
Next I made a script called  Cclient.sh

#! /bin/sh
cd .wine/drive_c/ProgramFiles/CClient
wine Cclient.exe

I stored this in my home directory /home/john
Please note that my ProgramFile directory does not have a space in its name.
(to make my script work without any hussle).
Next I added a game called CHESS to the KDE start menu using 'manudrake' with 
the command implementation   /home/john/Cclient.sh
After this I copied the menu item 'CHESS' to the desktop.
Now I can play chess  on the FICS server without any problem by just clicking 
on the icon 'CHESS'
The only problem I have is with my playing skill :-)
Hope this might help you.
