Did you, or anyone else, ever find a solution to this. I have exactly the
same problem running on RH7 with wine-20010418. I too have a real windows 98
partition that has office / word2000 already installed and running.

Also the installer will not work at all under wine for me so this is not an
option (unless someone knows how to make it work now)
