ATI drivers don't provide most needed features, though they released
specs a while back so hopefully this will change in the coming years.

EEK! Don't do that!

Start fresh:
$ rm -rf ~/.wine

And install your apps. They should work fine. Rarely, some apps may
need native dlls to work around wine bugs (make sure to file a bug),
or they may forget to bundle a redistributable DLL, in which case
winetricks is your friend.
