This is a good approach. 9.2 is reasonable better, though. An easy thin
client setup can be performed with Knoppix. You can have it on a server
with the Knoppix network boot system and all your clients will be
knoppix clients. A recent wine is installed there, too.

1. use win-20041019
2. use WineTools (http://www.von-thadden.de/Joachim/WineTools/) to get a
   usable setup and config
3. go through the whole Base setup, creating a new .wine and installing
   DCOM98 and IE6 as a basis for further installations
4. without changing anything try to *install* your program from the
   original media
5. send bug report to the list

"Never touch a running system! Never run a touching system?
          Never run a touchy system!!!"
