[Wine] Game Locking Up Due to Sound?

I'm relatively new to Linux.  I'm using Ubuntu 8.04.  I've installed Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl.  The game runs fine but with absolutely no sound.  I configure the sound using ALSA in the drivers portion of the audio tab and the test works fine.  I have removed pulse audio as I have read this conflicts with WINE.  It seems if I try to use an audio driver the game then locks up and all I get is a black screen when I go to start the game.  If I disable all audio the game runs just fine.  I have a Turtle Beach Riviera 5.1 that is configured and working properly in Ubuntu itself.  I don't understand why I am having this much trouble.  Has anyone else run into this, am I doing something wrong?
