Visual Fox Pro 6 APP and Wine & Reggresion

Hello, i'm working in software development company, and we have a custom made software in VFP 6, as we're thinking on replacing all our
win9x boxes to linux (since we got rid of those hard-to-manage-and-prone-to-error nt boxes) since we mostly use this app for everything, we
tried to run it in Linux using wine.
i downloaded the latest wine release, the codeweavers release and a CVS one, none of them seem to work and all displayed this error
So i went to the mailing list archives and found that there had been some regressions in the wine code, and it advised to run wine-20010510,
after compiling and installing this release, it did exit (wine) with the same error, not giving up, i played with the --winver option, and found that
wine --winver win2000 app.exe, and wine --winver nt40 app.exe both did run the app ok, some minor drawing errors, but everything was ok;
until i came to the part where printing was needed and, i found that printing didn't work, after reading the wine users documentation, i added the [ppd]
section but had no luck.
Then i joined #winehq in irc.openprojects.net, i was asked to try my printing system with Abiword for windows, after installing
Abiword with wine, and running it with --winver win98, i found that indeed the printing system worked, as printing documents from Abiword worked flawlessly
not so using Abiword with --winver win2000 (nt40), whom in the printing dialog, did show a "dummy" driver for printing..., going into the source i found out that
the wineps.drv is only 16bit, and win2000/nt40 don't support win16 drivers.
is there anyway that this app could run in --winver win9x mode? can this "heap" errors be solved?
this is my ~/.wine/config: http://www.reconfig.net/~atax/config
and the errors with wine --winver win2000 app.exe : http://www.reconfig.net/~atax/error.txt
any help will be really appreciated.
