Did you try setting mscoree to disabled?

You want both.

The 2k one installs old stuff like directplay or directmusic, which wine only implements partially or not at all.

The xp one installs new helper libs like Xaudio2, X3Daudio, but does not install dplay & friends because winxp has them anyway.
