Hmm, there were a few things I remember having to install to get Steam working.

Make sure you have:
DirectX
Windows non-free fonts
Internet browser*

all installed.

I'm not sure exactly which browser was required, either a mozilla plugin or ie4linux if I recall.

Also, take a look at PlayOnLinux, they have automatic scripts set up to get common games running under wine, as well as offering different versions of wine all-in-one. Also, if you don't have the non-free graphics drivers installed, you'll find a hard time playing any 3D games.

There are guides on here. If you're using an nVidia, you shouldn't have too much trouble.

You don't need fonts, directx nor browser to run games via Steam. I've got Orange Box and I can run all games using pure Wine, without any addons.

update

You may also try to disable access to Steam community.
