Yep, IMHO it's a bug. I guess the Wine FAQ should have an entry
Q. I'm trying to install something. The first thing that
shows up is a dialog box saying "Setup is preparing the
InstallShield wizard...", then I just get a big blue screen
with the name of the product in the background, and it sits
A. Try editing ~/.wine/config and change the line that says
Managed = "Y"
Managed = "N"
That works around a problem where Wine gets the Z-order of some
windows wrong. This problem will eventually be fixed.

Nah, the DAO install went fine after that. I guess I'll move on to the
next issue, the MFC migration kit install, since fixing this bug appears
to be beyond my skill level for the moment.
Say, does anyone know what bug # this is in the bug database?
I had trouble searching just now...
