[Wine]Solidworks: cannot find a proper pixel format

Took the cdrom from office and tried to run it on Wine (20040121). (before
sneaking a linux setup in the office...) Wine was installed on a pure linux
system, without any MS directory/filesystem/files.
The installation went without any problems or errors.
I can start the program, and then I get in the terminal the following message:
"ERROR: You need to merge the 'winedefault.reg' file into your
Wine registry by running: `regedit winedefault.reg'"
Since I cannot find regedit anywhere, this may be the cause of the problem,
but this is the only application giving this error. Do I have to take it from
a windows cd?
After a few flickers of the opening window I have the program open. I can
start a new part or open an exsisting one. Drawing a line and so on works,
but once I do something that will manipulate the 3D object I get the
following message: "cannot find a proper pixel format" and then the
application (and wine) hangs.
The pc uses an ATI9200 with the drivers coming with the kernel for DRM 4.1 ATI
Radeon. As far as I can see, I'm using Xfree86 4.3.0. In the XF86Config I
find the following:
"# Device configured by xf86config:
Identifier "hercules 3d prophet 9200"
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
Looks ok to me. If I run the fglrxinfo utility from ATI, then I get the
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 4.0.4"
So while this is not the ATI opengl diver, there is an opengl driver active.
Can anyone putting me in the right direction?
