As I guess from your post you are searching for a M$ free solution.
Well, we did not try, but you can! Go through the Base setup, but skip
the installation of DCOM98 and IE6.  Instead try to install the Control
and continue with WineTools setup.

Do the installations of system software work? Can you install Office 2k
and does it work?
