Wine and XP

I have Wine working, and my Windows XP-installation mounted
as read only. Reading the FAQ, I noticed: "DON'T configure Wine
to use an NT-based Windows install (NT, Win2K, WinXP)."
So... is it futile to try to get XP-applications running on my
Linux-box? Should I install them from Wine, and if so, how?
"wine SETUP.EXE"?

I'm mostly interested in running Instant Messanger (MSN) 6.0 from
wine at the moment. Has anyone here managed to do this? What would
I need to do?
