I strongly advise you get it working OK on win before you attempt to run it on
wine, or you risk wasting lots of time on this.

I don't think you'll get office 2k3 running on wine. It uses lots of XP/win2k3
only features, that aren't implemented in wine. Codeweavers will probably
implement those functions for their crossover office suite, this should allow it
to run on wine with a few config tweaks.
