	Hardware drivers will not work in Wine, sorry.

	However, from your post I understood that you have Windows. So you can 
download VirtualBox for Ubuntu 10.04LTS 64-bit: 

	Install it by running (assuming that you downloaded the file into current 
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-3.2_3.2.8-64453~Ubuntu~lucid_amd64.deb

	If you never used it before, read documentation: 

	Set memory to recommended minimum for your version of Windows (in order to 
preserve as much as possible memory for Linux host) and then install Windows in

it. This isn't perfect solution, but it is better than dual-boot.

	If you have any question about VirtualBox please ask them at
