MS Office 97: so close...

I tried again to install Office 97 on today's vanilla wine from cvs.
Here's what I did, from the start:
  sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 mso97.iso /mnt
  rm -rm .wine
  # choose WinME emulation
  # Override odbccp32
  # quit
  wine \\mnt\\setup.exe
It worked great, right up to the end, where it failed with
the dialog box "Accwiz.dll was unable to register itself in the system
registry".  Here are the unique fixme's from the log:
fixme:font:WineEngRemoveFontResourceEx :stub
fixme:ole:MkParseDisplayName (0x7eb38788, L"stdole32.tlb", 0x7b93ed34,
0x110): stub.
fixme:ole:MkParseDisplayName (0x7eb38908, L"stdole32.tlb", 0x7b93ec60,
0x110): stub.
fixme:ole:MkParseDisplayName (0x7eb38908, L"STDOLE32.TLB", 0x7b93ee88,
0x7eb3ab04): stub.

I've filed this as
along with a +ole,+dialog log.  (+relay took waaaay too long to run.)

Having Office '97 running on plain Wine would make my life easier-
my wife would no longer object so much to having Linux on
all our computers :-)

So are those fixme's important, or just a distraction?
