winecheck output

I have Mandrake 9.0 with NO windows partition.
Wine version 20020804.
(Fresh installation from Mandrake)

As a first step I ran the winecheck script i found on

It founds tree items as CRITICAL.

Can anyone help how to solve this?


Here it's the complete output from the script:

[mcanedo at grupogcm-interno mcanedo]$ ./winecheck
This script verifies the configuration of the whole Wine environment.
Note that this is an ALPHA version, and thus it doesn't catch all problems !
The results of the checks are printed on the right side:
OK         - test passed without problems.
SUSPICIOUS - potentially problematic. You might want to look into that.
BAD        - This is a problem, and it leads to configuration score penalty.
CRITICAL   - A critical problem which can easily lead to malfunction.
FAILED     - This problem leads to Wine failure almost certainly.

The result will be printed as a percentage score indicating config

030. Checking availability of windows registry entries...   CRITICAL (entry 
"Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: Windows registry does not seem to be added to Wine, as this typical 
Windows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. This can affect 
many newer programs. A complete original Windows registry entry set will 
*not* be available with a no-windows install, of course, so you'll have to 
live with that..

30 tests. 2 suspicious, 0 bad, 3 critical, 0 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 60.80%
