[Wine] trying to run geneforge in wine

I am fairly new to Linux and Wine. I have finally got around to trying some games in Wine. I am running Ubuntu lucid lynx and wine 1.2 and want to play the Geneforge games from spiderweb software. The app data base says that it is supposed to run well, but it loads, the menu screen is fine, then when I go to start a new game the mouse is nearly impossible to control, it is jumping around the screen kind of at random. Then, if I get through that and start the game, the character won't move. 
Visually, the game looks perfect, it is just the mouse that I am having trouble with. Anyone have any ideas on how to make the mouse behave?
