Apple's X11 on Lion supposedly will do this as well, but XQuartz is still all around better.  Apple's X11 on Snow Leopard and older cannot.  You really just want to run XQuartz if you are using Wine this way.[/quote]

You can do it that way or you can download a disk image file and install 
it on Snow Leopord beside Apple's X11 or instead of on Leopard.

It will be the default X11 unless you override on Snow Leopard or 
re-install X11 on Leopard.
