    The .dll goes in your C:\windows\system directory (the one wine made for you). Once it's in place, you'll need to run winecfg, hit the "Add Application..." button for the game you're running, and go through the file dialog to find the game's executable. Once it's added, highlight its name in the list, go to the "Libraries" tab, and add an override for the .dll you need.
