I had a similar situation installing Dragon Nat. Speaking with  
installshield. I thought the thing was hanging and infact it was popping  
up a modal dlg with a yes/no or whatever and wine was failing to bring it  
to the front.

If the BC installer is hogging the whole screen and you are getting a  
similar disfunction in wine you may think it is hung when it is not.

There is a line in .wine/config that allows you to catch badly behaved  
installers in 600x800 window so that you can still access the rest of the  

It's fairly unlikely that an installer will really cripple your kernel to  
the point where you have to power-off.
