The howto you followed is an excellent example of why outside howtos aren't supported here. Native rpcrt4.dll, which that howto calls for, will prevent Wine from working at all. As for Office 2003, NO native dlls are needed to install. 

You didn't say what version of Wine you're using; if it's not the latest development release, upgrade. Then delete ~/.wine and reinstall Office just by running the installer--no winetricks or other tweaks. After installing, set riched20 to native (again, no winetricks; Office installs its own riched20).

In the future, follow only the howtos here.
