Just try to extract the installer with 'cabextract' or 'unshield', that 
should do the job. After that you should have all the files in a 
directory the installer uses. There is probably a setup-file or a 
msi-file packaged with it, so try starting it (msi-files are started 
with msiexec, but i dunno how good wine can handle such files). I havent 
tried it with this particular package myself, but sometimes its quite 
helpful ;) if you need any further help, just post it!
