Wine, M$Excel and MSCREATE.DIR

Is it possible to get M$Excel working with Wine?

I use Mandrake 9.1 with wine-20030115-4mdk and M$Excel97 SR1

I always get an error about MSCREATE.DIR when I launch Excel.

Console messages are:
[steph at DeepGlue steph]$ wine /mnt/windows/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ 
fixme:ole:CoRegisterMessageFilter stub
Created not existing system directory 'C:\My Documents'
file_set_error: Permission denied
fixme:ntdll:RtlNtStatusToDosError no mapping for 0001869f
XIO:  fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
      after 5949 requests (5949 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
[steph at DeepGlue steph]$

Should I try CrossOver plugin?

Are vba macro OK with it?

Thank you very much.
