[Wine] Inability to proceed with installation of Windows app

I used to use Windows; now I use Linux. One application I used under
Windows was MS Money; under Linux, I've been using Gnucash instead.
However, Gnucash has been causing me some problems recently, so I
thought of trying to use Wine to run my old copy of MS Money under Linux.
I downloaded and installed an RPM of Wine for my distribution,
wine-core-0.9.16-2.fc3.i386.rpm. That done, I used IEs4Linux to get
MSIE6 running with Wine. I can browse with MSIE6, but really installed
it because it's said to be necessary to have a working version of MSIE
in order to install MS Money.
I next tried to install MS Money from CD-ROM. However, when I ran the
setup utility, I couldn't proceed because the successive installation
windows were all blank, though buttons in the windows (also blank) did
I didn't find any reference to such a problem in the Wine documentation
and don't know what its cause might be. I do have a folder called fonts
in c:\windows with 40 items in it and MSIE6 appears to work properly so
far as text is concerned, given my brief use of it.
Do I need additional fonts or is there some other reason why the
installation text doesn't appear?
Thanks for your attention,
