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

Hey, I checked that site and it looks like they only have dsound.dll
(which I also have on my WinXP drive).

I tried Ulisses suggestion' to put dsound.dll in the system32 folder and
symlink it to sound.dll, but I still get error #21.  Since this is
different from the error when I have no sound.dll at all (error #2), I'm
still thinking that it's a problem either with the dll itself (e.g.,
wrong version), or with wine's ability to use it.

Are there any other tweaks I can try, or maybe some other candiates for
the sound.dll?

Thanks again...
