The Sidenet - Script is still there.

Another Tip:
"Next get the libxxf86dga1 package"

Why that? 
DGA was dropped in July 2006:

IMHO, the only useful things, a wine download script can do is:

- download and install wine

- optional download and install the gecko-engine
  - add the "IE 6.0"-Version to the Registry

- optional download and install mono
  - add the ".Net"-Version to the Registry
    (The above mono provides ".Net 1.1")

- optional download and install the corefonts
  suggest a BUG-Report, when the buildin Fonts are not correct

Enable download and installation for native DCOM /
native MSI only as a test, when the buildin versions
do not work and an active wine BUG-ID is provided.
