I know this is a cross platform sort of program, and was wondering if any of you knew if it would work. Thanks for any help or insight.

Wine in its complete form doesn't run on Windows currently.  It's intended to be used under Linux/BSD/Solaris/OS X.

You'd probably be better off asking for help with the game on windows from some community related to the game, eg: http://impz.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=LOM

If you want to try running the game and patches under Wine, my suggestion is to install Ubuntu.
