Wine configuration problem


I have installed wine 20011226 found in mandrake 8.2. But when i tried to install msoffice 97, it prompt me the following message:
[tkl@localhost cdrom]$ wine setup.exe
err:mmsys:MMDRV_InitHardcoded You didn't setup properly the config file for the Wine
multimedia modules.
Will use the hard-coded setup, but this will disappear soon.
Please add a WinMM section to your Wine config file.
err:module:map_image Could not map section .text, file probably truncated
err:module:PE_fixup_imports Module (file) MSSETUP.dll (which is needed by E:\~MSSETUP.T\~msstfof.t\acmsetup.exe) not found


Can someone advice me how to edit and put those things in place.
Also how to create a fake d: drive(cdrom drive) for the linux to recognise.

Thanks for early reply.

When you install Wine, it should create a configuration directory under your home directory, probably called .wine. The wine config file, along with fake ASCII Windows registry files, are saved in there. The one called config is the Wine config.

If you open it up in your favorite editor, there should be a group of lines at the top that define the disk drives you want Wine to use. (I forget exactly what it looks like, but it's pretty recognizable). Point the D: drive to your CDRom, such as /mnt/cdrom, in order to get the CDrom to work under Wine. (I think you also need to edit the device name to point in the correct place, i.e. /dev/hdb or whatever it is)

As for the DLL error... if I remember correctly, Wine looks in its fake-windows (or real-windows, if you are running it from a real Windows partition) /windows/system directory for any DLLs. If they aren't there, it checks in a few other places, such as your home directory, and the current directory that you're running Wine from. If you can find the DLL in question and copy it to one of those places, it may fix that problem.

Be aware that MS Office 97 is not too likely to work in Wine, especially such an old version. You can get a newer version from the Wine Homepage. You may want to look into Crossover Office (commercial program, about $50) if you really need to run Office, or OpenOffice if you want a native Linux office suite that is at least as good as MS Office (and is interoperable with MS Office, for the most part).

After using the method u teach me, it still prompt me the same and some new message.

[tkl@localhost cdrom]$ wine setup.exe
err:mmsys:MMDRV_InitHardcoded You didn't setup properly the config file for the Wine
multimedia modules.
Will use the hard-coded setup, but this will disappear soon.
Please add a WinMM section to your Wine config file.
err:module:map_image Could not map section .text, file probably truncated
err:module:PE_fixup_imports Module (file) MSSETUP.dll (which is needed by E:\~MSSETUP.T\~msstfof.t\acmsetup.exe) not found


Where should i search for the DLL files and where to store them?

Tell us a little more about how you have Wine configured, and what solutions you have tried. Did you point Wine to a real Windows installation, or are you using a fake-windows installation? Have you read the Wine User's Guide and looked in its troubleshooting section? Have you looked around on the Wine knowledgebase for answers to your question? Have you tried a newer version of Wine (perhaps one that is not more than two years old)? Have you tried installing the source version instead? Did you check the Supported Applications List to see if anyone else has had similar problems trying to install Office? Have you searched Google?

Keep in mind that Wine is not a production piece of software. It has many bugs. Also remember what I said - Office97 is a hugely complex piece of software, so trying to get it to work in Wine is going to be difficult.
