    after you installed wine
    i install the ttf-ms-fonts (i am not using suse so..)
    run winecfg as user it wil create the window files
    give the command $ wine notepad
    or $ wine wordpad
    to see if it works
    install a small windows program as user
    try simple sudoku it wil work fine with wine

    If you mean graphics drivers meant for windows, NO ! You can't. Device drivers need to be in native linux form....
