Hello fellow wineries!

I am not new to Linux, have been using a few years now, however I am not an expert my any means either.

I am attempting to run Starcraft (Blizzard) in wine on my Debian system.

The install will not run. I have tried several different compatibility types (win95, win98, XP among others) but with no avail. The install.exe (or setup.exe) on the cd will not run. It opens up wine (if I choose to emulate a desktop env) for about 8 seconds then it closes. There is no error output like the older versions of wine used to have. If I choose not to emulate a desktop, it simply spins the cd for 8 secs and nothing happens. I know that wine essentially crashes because nothing is found in processes (ps -A)

Am I missing something?

System information:
Linux 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Thu Mar 26 01:08:11 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
wine 1.0.1

If you need anything else let me know.
