Counter-Strike 1.6 on Wine

I wanted to play this game Counter-Strike, for some time now..and yesterday i got some free time to try this out. Actually it was pretty easy to get it to work on my Fedora9 with Wine. Only thing i had to do manually was to copy this msvbvm60.dll from a M$ Windows machine to .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/

The graphics get a bit jerky when the game is starting up, and once it loads up its quite smooth.
Btw The installer wizard was filled with some strange looking characters instead of the instructions, but i guess i got the correct buttons when i clicked. Shouldn't be hard.

This would be the second FPS game i had luck with over wine., Unreal tournament being the 1st.

I need to try Wine with Half-Life 2 (E1 & E2). I saw on YouTube that people are doing it very successfully on Linux.
