gentoo ; kernel 2.6.22 with alsa and alsa-oss; wine 20050524; NS 7 pref.

I've started going through this from scatch. So far I have got the  
installer to work by importing riched* from win2k and comdlg32.dll off a  
dll archive on the web.

used sidenet to set up the config only.

refered to frankscorner to install DCOM98 and to run installshield.

wine regedit to add string value 5.0.2014.0216 to following regkey.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

So far it installs without error but now on running wine natspeak I get

"cant find nstex50.dll"

this is odd since it is in the current dir.

This may be a result of my not having installed IE6 this time but still  
seems odd.
