Your original question was about installing from the install cd, but your post with terminal output shows you trying to run setup.exe from the desktop. Which is it--an install cd, or a setup file on your desktop? You have to cd to the actual location of setup.exe. If it's an install cd, make sure that drive is mapped in winecfg.

That's a known problem with Ubuntu 10.04. Search the Ubuntu forum for how to fix it.

That will only work with apps that don't make any registry changes or install any files outside the program directory.
