WMP you can install using winetricks: http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks

Some games that use OpenAL crash on Wine (with devision by 0 - an OpenAL bug) or 
their sound doesn't work at all. Try downloading latest OpenAL drivers from Creative (openal.dll & wrap_oal.dll) and replace those that came with a game.
