PlayOnLinux -- Automated WINE Installations

PlayOnLinux is a frontend that helps to install a number of population Windows games and applications on Linux using WINE. It connects to an online PlayOnLinux script repository for the latest script to automate the installation of a given program. You still have to own a copy of the Windows program you want to install, of course. Currently, automated install scripts are available for 30 or 40 Windows games (including such popular titles as World of Warcraft, Steam, Elder Scrolls 4 and Call of Duty 2). Only about ten applications currently have scripts, but these ten include Office 2003 and Trillian.

This is a fairly specialized tool for Linux users, but if you need to install a Windows game that will work with WINE (Or Office 2003), and are having trouble getting WINE to cooperate, PlayOnLinux might solve your problems.
