winecheck Problem

may I come back to my initial question from August 27 ?
I did "regedit winedefault.reg", and as far as I understood the business, with 
success. However, running "winecheck" after that shows no change at all: the 
program dies checking sound device /dev/dsp, see below.
I asume that this is a bug in winecheck: the program should not die by any 
circumstances but give a message telling what is wrong instead, giving  the 
chance for a correction. I know that winecheck is not part of wine, strictly 
speaking, but perhaps someone can help. I would like to have a more or less 
100% system before I start trying to run applications.
Thanks again,
