Having tried wine in the past, I do not recommend it. I had fits with it. Some things work. Some don't. I use VirtualBox and load in a whole separate operating system. If you don't have the disks that could be a problem. If you have the installation disks for another OS, VirtualBox is the way to go.

BTW Google Earth should operate on an AMD chip set if you enable milti-arch as Sven said. That would seem to be the easier cleaner way to go.
