wine newbie can't get install of Icewind Dale to work

I'm pretty new to wine. I'm pretty sure I have it installed and 
configured correctly (notepad runs perfectly), but I can't get Icewind 
Dale to install. I assume I'm doing something wrong, but ...

Basically, I stick the CD in, run

wine /mnt/cdrom/Setup.exe

the install starts, and says Icewind Dale is starting the InstallShield 
wizard which will guide me through the install process, and runs quickly 
up to 100% on the progress bar. BUT, at about 98% another window pops up 
very briefly then disappears.

After sitting at 100% for a minute or so, the InstallShield window 
closes, and I get this at the command line:

[matt at localhost .wine]$ wine /mnt/cdrom/Setup.exe
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
err:wave:ARTS_WaveInit arts_init() failed (-1)
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  12 (X_ConfigureWindow)
  Serial number of failed request:  93
  Current serial number in output stream:  98

I have seen that IceWind Dale should work, although I the winehq apps 
database doesn't really say anything else about it, and Frank's Corner 
doesn't mention it (although it mentions Baldur's Gate, which is 
supposed to be similar).

Any ideas or suggestions?
