Sorry, as I don't know your CD I can not answer that. WineTools executes
the file you points it to. It should be something like "ie6setup.exe".
But it's better you use the builtin download of the english version.
That setup is tested and should work.

This is normal as you might only have one mixer in your soundcard.
