WIne & SuSE10

Trying to quit windows and need some with wine (still got some software I havent been able to quit).
Installed wine-20050830-SuSELinux100.i586.rpm and winetools-2.1.2-jo.i386.rpm and started winetools from terminal to configure wine.

In Base setup I can get explorer installed, it download the setup exe but the installation fails.

process  tid      prio (all id:s are in hex)
00000010 (D) C:\windows\temp\IXP000.TMP\ie6wzd.exe
        00000011    0 <==
        0000000f    0
WineDbg terminated on pid 0x10

mv: kan inte ta status p "/home/mooler/.wine/drive_c/windows/system/regsvr32.exe": Filen eller katalogen finns inte
Downloaded IE6-Files=0
Winetools  IE6-Files=0
Some of the text is in swedish but I guess it's not to difficult to figure out what in means. The error "could not get status on regsvr32.exe" is troubling me. The file wasn't there so I downloaded it separatly and placed it in the folder. I guess that is the problem but I can't figure out what to do to get to the next step.
