Thanks for comparing notes,

I seem to be having more trouble with wine than anything else at the  

I cant get fonts to be a readable size so I cant even run winecfg.

Too much swapping versions and something has got screwed up . I've  
uninstalled wine completely and renamed ~/.wine but even sidenet now fails  
to download IE6.

beware of NS saying things are missing. As Andreas noted yesterday NS is  
doing direct file detection so it may be that the buildin dll would do the  
job if it actually tried to load it !!

You will note for the DCOM and installl notes one of the dlls marked as  
native was this one , so it must be available somewhere.

You could use WINEDEBUG=+file  and grep the output to see just where it is  
looking for the file. Then use touch to create a null file that will fool  
the file check.

As for your bell, it should chime once. NO idea why it does not stop.

I'll try your wine version and see if I get anywhere.
