[Wine] wineboot not working as expected

I'm trying to install "Microsoft Digital Image 9", and the very first thing it does is configures a few files then immediately prompts the user it's going to reboot. I press "Ok", and it then does what it just did, and pops up the same message. This can continue forever. So, I decided to try to press "Ok", then immediately enter in "wineboot". That doesn't work. So I try "wineboot -r". That also does nothing. So I try "wineboot -s", nothing happens again, so I finally do "wineboot -f" and it finally kills it. I really want to install this program, but rebooting is failing. I've installed the latest wine, and I've run the "install-wine-deps.sh" script from the wine hq site. I'm currently running Ubuntu 8.10 intrepid ibex on i386.
I think that wineboot may not be looking in the correct places to reboot wine since I'm thinking it should be looking in "/media/cdrom/startup.exe", so here's a copy of my wineboot file (it's as default as can be):

if [ -x "$appdir/wine" ]; then exec "$appdir/wine" "$appname" "$@"; fi
# finally look in PATH
exec wine "$appname" "$@"
Are there any recommendations for a similar, open source, image editor?
