Thanks for the reply:

This is a dual boot machine. MSOffice '97 is installed in a win98 native 
parttion. From a boot of that partition MSword and MSexcel both find and 
run spell checker successfully.

In both the July and August released of Wine spell checker does not 
work. As of the July release the order to dll search was changed to all 
builtin dll's.

Word fails to offer the spell checker option under tools at all. Excel 
offers it but them fails with a "cannot initialize spell checker" error
