What kind of video card do you have in your computer?  If it is an
nVidia/AMD/ATI card you will have to install the propriatery drivers
vice the open-source ones as the open source drivers are missing
pieces for running Wine.  X desktop crashes are an indicator that this
may be what is happening.  During the installation, please also select
the 32 bit extensions as you are using the 32 bit version of Wine.
