[Wine] Installing Panasonic Drivers (Win XP) with Wine on Linux

I'm very new to Linux (just installed Ubintu 9.1 on a new hard drive 2 days ago), and having a heck of a hard time installing windows xp programs on Linux.
At the very least, I need to install printer drivers for my Panasonic KX-MB781 (multi-function, laser). Panasonic doesn't have any Linux drivers. Ubintu's own printer manager application, while it can detect my networked printer, it doesn't have drivers for it! It has a dozen or so other Panasonic KX-P#### printers, but not mine.
So, I wanted to just install the windows version of the drivers, from the CD that came with my printer. I have Wine installed, so I just tried to run the setup.exe program. It started to install, then crashed and gave an error msg about some "dll" files.
Any idea how I can install the windows version of the printers' drivers with WINE? Appreciate any help.
