1) You cannot use DirectX distribution for windows. Wine is supposed to
   implement it by itself, with no additional downloads.
2) AFAIK there is no DirectX distribution for other platforms than for
   windows. So you cannot find it anywhere, because it doesn't exist :-).

Did you look at WineDB, what they say about your game ? 
Also, more details (wine version, OS/distribution it's running on etc.)
are needed to give you more help :-).
                    With regards, Pavel Troller
