What is Maple?  If you mean Maple Story don't bother, it doesn't work
under Wine yet.  Its something to do with the Anti-Cheating software
that's included with it that doesn't work in Wine yet.  If not, please

I'm not certain why you are seeing different content on the CD in both
Windows and Linux.  WINE isn't an emulator like VMware, it provides an
API environment under Linux for Windows software without emulation and
thus there are some programs which aren't fully compatible with it
yet.  WINE is improving all the time though.  The developers, testers
and users of WINE maintain a database of software that does and
doesn't work under WINE on the software's website:

If that program is not the aforementioned Maple Story, have you
actually tried installing it to see if it will work?
