No. The output(USB audio driver can not be installed error) came from
Setup.exe other than Wine. And I have already given up. I need to
study Wine more. There are at least 2 big problems in Wine.

  First, InstallShield hang up problem is very common. In fact hanging
up problem was solved by MS dcom98 though, the target application need
WinXP, at least Win2K. There might be some OS mis-match problem between
the instalation and execution.

  Second, the target application in setup phase need USB Audio driver
installation. Wine does not seem  to support user USB (Audio) driver.

Yes. At least I don't have telephone during FC4 occupying PC now.

Cool! But it's a little bit late, I did it manually.

Thank you for your advice.
