[Wine] Could not load 'SOUND.DLL' required by 'sierrawh', error=2

It looks like its trying to load it natively (although that could be
because I set it try that first in winecfg).  At any rate, I found a
copy of sound.dll online...I tried putting it in places that seemed like
good candidates (e.g., the same directory as the exe, as well as the
same directory where sound.drv.so is installed).  I get a slightly
different error now:

trace:loaddll:MODULE_LoadModule16 Loaded module
"C:\\SIERRA\\HOYLECG\\hoylecg.exe" : native
Could not load 'SOUND.DLL' required by 'sierrawh', error=21

So now would this be a problem with getting the right version maybe?
Just a guess...I don't suppose somebody has an old sound.dll lying
around anywhere?

Thanks for the help.
