Ultima Online in Wine and RH9

Ok im currently trying to get the program Ultima Online to run under wine in red hat 9, its been done before by others under linux but i seem to have a unique problem.

Just about when the install is finished i get an error window:

"A Sharing Violation has occured while trying to access an unnamed file"
This window pops up about 200 times before wine either terminates, or crashes.

For those that know the Ultima Online program:

CDNAME: AOS_ENU (Age of Shadows release cd)
PROGRAM: setup2d.exe
HANGS ON: yewpos.mp3

My Wine Configuration:

;; All keys relative to \\Machine\\Software\\Wine\\Wine\\Config

;; If you think it is necessary to show others your complete config for a
;; bug report, filter out empty lines and comments with
;; grep -v "^;" ~/.wine/config | grep '.'
;; MS-DOS drives configuration
;; Each section has the following format:
;; [Drive X]
;; "Path"="xxx"       (Unix path for drive root)
;; "Type"="xxx"       (supported types are 'floppy', 'hd', 'cdrom' and 'network')
;; "Label"="xxx"      (drive label, at most 11 characters)
;; "Serial"="xxx"     (serial number, 8 characters hexadecimal number)
;; "Filesystem"="xxx" (supported types are 'msdos'/'dos'/'fat', 'win95'/'vfat', 'unix')
;;   This is the FS Wine is supposed to emulate on a certain
;;   directory structure.
;;   Recommended:
;;   - "win95" for ext2fs, VFAT and FAT32
;;   - "msdos" for FAT16 (ugly, upgrading to VFAT driver strongly recommended)
;;   DON'T use "unix" unless you intend to port programs using Winelib !
;; "Device"="/dev/xx" (only if you want to allow raw device access)

I have exact the same problem.

I'm on mandrake 10 official (2.4.25 kernel).

A question: where did you install it to?
