Yes, it is possible.
Right click on your game's install.exe and select run with WINE.
Install and enjoy.
If it doesn't work, try Codeweavers' stuff (based on WINE)

You can try WINE or crossover for games as
suggested or Transgaming's Cedega ( both are based on WINE ).
WINE is free and open source ( $0 ).
crossover for games and Cedega are commercial.

Maybe you should write a WINE FAQ for all those people constantly asking about WINE.
