No.  Wine doesn't provide support for device drivers.  We have some fake
VxDs in there, just for some old apps that called them to do non-device
driver type things.

Yep, that's what you'll want to do.  Disassembly may help.  People around
here seem to like IDA Pro.  Search the wine-devel archives for more
suggestions for disassemblers.

Good luck,
