First, make sure you have the latest dev version of Wine (1.3.x). The
only .deb I can find on Wine's download page is for Sid, so you'll
have to compile for Squeeze. There's a link to a list of Recommended
Packages at the bottom of the page.

If you've paid Blizzard for the game (in other words, it's legal), try
a net install from them. That should take care of your CD situation.
Make sure Wine itself works first (including IE6 at minimum). You'll
need IE to accept the EULA"s. Directions for the download are on the
Blizz site.
