No.

Regarding SLI: might / should work, and there are drivers for nforce included with the Linux Kernel.

so with wine it can work???.... if the version of linux didn't loading for some reasons.....
i try and load a live cd of linux ( i think it's suse pro) and i didn't have sound, and i haven't had the drives of ethernet... also the most strangest is that, did not have read the usb ports....

this comes , because the operation systrem is from live cd??

thank you for your help......

No. You can't install or use any drivers with wine.

Might be. Probably the wrong drivers where loaded, or no drivers where loaded at all. But without further information (lspci, lsmod and dmesg) I can't tell you for sure.

You might want to try a different Live CD, more recent or older one. Ubuntu as an example, or kanotix, which has a good hardware detection.

Sorry I can't help you more, but with "it didn't work" as all information I got it is really hard to tell what might have gone wrong.

thank you for your help, I believe a simple test it will convince me.....
i will try to install the unbunt 8.10 if they are presented problems then I will lead to poor windows (for me ), and I will hope for better days ( if they exist)...... :P:P

i forgot to say about lspci, lsmod and dmesg, i try this
"dmesg | grep -i usb " for the usb ports but i didn't have respond,( dmesg is not availble ) so for this might be resposible the live cd,
