[olug] wine

I finally gave in, sort of...  I would like to play online poker and most of the poker websites require downloading their custom software, which of course is written for winders users. <sigh>  I did find one that uses Java, but it crashes...  Anyhow, I did a separate install of Fedora 13 on this machine and installed wine.  Read some stuff, downloaded the software from both PokerStars and FullTilt and both crash.  I go to a table, join the game (i.e. sit down), when the current hand finishes and the dealer is ready to deal the next hand, wine crashes.  SIGSEGV, i.e. seg fault.  I read somewhere about making a change to allow "low memory" access for wine, which I did.

So the question is, does anybody in OLUG play poker online from Linux?  Do you use wine or Java?  Since I am totally ignorant about both, especially wine (since I know essentially nothing useful about winders) I don't even know where to start.  Would turning off selinux help?

Any help would be appreciated...
