[Wine] Trouble Running Games using Wine on Ubuntu 10.10

I'm having some trouble running the following games on Ubuntu 10.10 using wine:

Counter-strike source/Half Life 2
Warcraft 3/Frozen Throne

The games run, but very very slowly (unplayable). I managed to get Counter Strike 1.6 to work fine by setting the renderer to be 'Software' under the Video options, but the other games have no such option (that I'm aware of).

I'd never tried CSS or Half-Life 2 before with wine, but both worked fine in Windows and War3/FT worked before I upgraded Ubuntu to 10.10.

I get the following output in the console when running Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne with -opengl

errle:CoCreateInstance apartment not initialised
