Age of Empires 1 & 2 playing on Wine with Debian

Nice problem is playing Age of Empires on Debian with wine.
First i download this file:
http://www.findthatzipfile.com/search-38788730-hZIP/winrar-winzip-download-dplaydlls-win98se.tar.bz2.htm
and expand it to this directories:
windows, system, system32

Then i start winecfg and set the emulation mode to win98.
At "Libraries" i add
dplay, dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast, dpwsockx

For accesing to the cdrom i add a drive-letter to the cd path at winecfg,
like: e: for /media/cdrom0
So the programs find the cdrom and i need no patch for the game.
