Alright, I'll try removing .wine.  I'm not trying to run it without Steam.  I have Steam running when I try to run hl2.exe.  I even tried it once without Steam running and it told me to start Steam.

When I go into Steam, and into the my games tab, the game won't launch, so I'm just using hl2.exe directly.
