[Wine] Is there a way to protect Wine?

This may seem weird, but is there a way to ensure that an installer cannot destroy your wine files? I have a game that, I think, may try to install some weird directX stuff without giving you the option, but I'm not sure, and I don't want to ruin my other games. I installed it once and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 stopped working, but that may have been the cause of something else. 

So...what can I do?  Is there some easy way of protecting wine and the other games? Or has there never been an installer that force installed directx? 

The game is a demo of Hype: The time quest,  available here if someone wants to test it: http://www.download.com/Hype-The-Time-Quest-demo/3000-7563_4-10032795.html
