Activex for Netscape 8.0.2 running under Wine


I have Netscape 8.0.2 running in my WinXP partition. I'm planning to abandon windows forever. but my wife runs an application of flight reservation that runs under browser with ActiveX.
When I run Netscape 8.0.2(superB!) it runs OK till I try to open a site that use ActiveX controls. In this case Netscape hits a message asking authorization for install ActiveX components and if I authorize, it gives an error and asks for abort.
Someone can tell me if there is a solution for this problem?
(the activeX controls are installed under WinXp partition. When I run Netscape under windows, everything is alright)

Greetings from São Paulo - Brazil

IMHO ActiveX is part of Windows OS, hence requires running Windows.

Please say something useful. Your obvious opinion doesn't add anything to my doubt...

If I'm trying to abandon windows... But I can't abandon my wife's work...

You can't use Active X under Linux. Active X are windows binaries, and are not nice with wine.
