If memory serves me right, the WinME emulation mode is still vastly
incomplete, and hardly usable.

If the fake_windows is W98, can't you just run Dreamweaver under W98
emulation mode?  Wouldn't that make more sense?  W98 mode works much
better than W-ME in terms of completion and function, I believe.

Some of the older Win OS emulations are more complete than newer ones -
XP mode's TCP/IP stack didn't work when I tried it, whereas the 98 mode
stack did.  Maybe using emulation of an older supported Windows version
would help.

You may also want to look at the August release of Wine, if you can get
it to compile.  Good luck.

Hope I helped.
