[Wine] WoW and Zune

Since I can't find Microsofts Zune player on the vote list I'll just ask about this here.
I'm new to Ubuntu Linux and the Wine program, and I'm slowly but surely learning more about linux every day. I finally got linux dual booted alongside windows XP to find that Wine has a list of supported programs. Zune isn't one of them, sadly. I like the way that the player works, runs, and looks. If there is a linux media player that is close to the way it works I would gladly use that. I'm using the one that comes with Linux, currently, and I hate how it groups some things. So if anyone is working on Zune for Wine I'd love to know about it. Or if there is a media player that works like the Zune player also, I'd like to know about it.
Secondly, I got WoW running using Wine, but the graphics are alittle messed up. I used the registry tweak for opengl but it didn't do anything to the game. I followed it to a T. My video card isn't fully supported by linux, I think. I get the little icon in the top right of the GUI that has a card and a lock beside it. I have the card enabled with the limited drivers. I have an nvidia geforce 6600. I went to the nvidia website and they have linux drivers for the 6 series, but I couldn't figure out how to install them.
The graphics for the world don't run correctly and the framerate isn't exactly what I would call smooth.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
