[Wine] NeverHood won't run [Unable to initialize DirectDraw]

I just installed the old game The Neverhood into WINE, and it won't run. On start up it pops up the following dialogue boxes:



Unable to initialize DirectDraw.

I have it set to run in Windows 98 (like the how-to from the AppDB), and I've tried it with both Vertex Shader and pixel shader on and off. I installed the DirectX that came with it.

I keep getting the same error. Has anyone else played this game, or at least gotten around this error with a different app? Thanks.
