One thing that I should mention also is that I could only install this game as 
a root user.  When I go to my D: Drive and type in wine ./SD_Install.exe it 
simply comes back to the command prompt.

Now after I have cleaned out my old install of WINE for root I am getting:

Warning: the specified Windows directory L"c:\\windows" is not accessible.
Warning: the specified System directory L"c:\\windows\\system32" is not 
Warning: could not find DOS drive for current working directory '/mnt/cdrom', 
starting in the Windows directory.

I would start by using the latest version of wine 0.9.18 and see if that
works, Direct3D has had many fixes since 0.9.8, and there is still more
fixes before Direct3D is close to being finished.
