[Wine] problems with games

I've bought my 12 yr old son a used laptop (Dell Latitude D600) and convinced him to use a version of linux unstead of Windows.  The laptop came with PCLinuxOS release 2007.

He really wants to be able to run some of his games, so I used the Synaptic Package Manager to install Wine.  The version available for PCLinuxOS was Wine 0.9.58.

So far I've tried two games, and I've struck out on both.  The installations seems to go fine, but the games don't play.

Star Wars: The Video Game
$ wine ./LegoStarwars.exe
wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0xfffffffc at address 0x38c3bac (thread 0022), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0xfffffffc in 32-bit code (0x038c3bac).
Register dump:

Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup
$wine ./QWC.exe
A gui pops up which says "A debugger has been detected: Unload the debugger and try again".
