[Wine] Games 'dissappear' after installing in wine...

I'm new to these forums and fairly new to linux and wine. I'm having some trouble with some computer games I'm trying to run under wine. The games are:
Call of Duty 5 World at War
Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare
Alien Versus Predator

I managed to install Call of Duty 5 and AvP without errors, however I can't run them. They don't appear in the wine menu or the games menu. (I'm using OpenSuse 11.3 64 bit with kde) I've checked the wine c-drive, and they don't appear there either. That is, I've checked /home/jacob/.wine/drive_c and /home/jacob/.wine/dosdevices. The games are NOT in those folders. However, the game installers can see the directories. Meaning that when I installed AvP I could see the folder for Call of Duty 5, however neither wine nor nautilus seems to be able to find these folders. I haven't changed ANY settings in wine.

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare is a different story altogether, this installer can also see those magic invisible folders that the other games are in, however it keeps claiming that I don't have 8gb of available harddisk space. As far as I can make out I have about 95gb free harddisk space.

According to the appdb all games should be supported. The Call of Duty Games should be awarded silver medals and AvP got gold...

Best regards,
