You won't find anything called "dcom98" in your Wine directories even if it is installed; what it installs are a bunch of dlls and tlbs. 

It sounds like you haven't tried installing it with winetricks. If you really want to do it manually, set the windows version to win98 before running dcom98.exe; that's one of the things winetricks does. Or just use winetricks to install it. 

Alternatively, you could just follow the original instructions you posted and use cabextract to extract the three dlls from dcom98 and manually place them in the program directory.
