I tried it on one of our machines once without success, but I was only
doing a quick check of heavy duty windows apps[1] to see how 'capable'
Wine was. I must emphasise though, that it was a plain old 'vanilla' Wine
call without any config. debugging because I don't care much about
Office2k.  O2K depends a lot on IE5 components and I imagine that causes a
lot of problems - in that IE4 runs under Wine painlessly but IE5 is a
different story.
