But to be clear. I copy all the dll's over from win98, so that 
/usr/lib/wine/wine would have the wine dll.so's and the win98 dll's.
Then I just make the changes in the config file. Right?

Looking at the config file, I see - before any changes:

"msvcrt"       = "native, builtin"
"mciavi.drv"   = "native, builtin"
"mcianim.drv"  = "native, builtin"

Does this mean it's looking is /usr/lib/wine/wine for the native 
(*.dll) files, but will fall back to wine dll's ( *.dll.so)?
