Well that's strange. One thing I am sure of is that
Wine can't use Ms DirectX. OTOH maybe the application
is checking for a particular file on the hard disk, in
this case the installation could be useful.
I'll try to mail the howto author to ask about this.
In the mean time, try to skip the 'DirectX' step.
If there is an error, report.
