Wine IE6SP1 install message: low disk space or corrupted

Summary: Wine IE6SP1 install message: low disk space or corrupted
cabinet file
Product: Wine
Version: 20040505
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Linux
Severity: normal
Priority: P2
Component: wine-binary

Installed Wine dist : Wine 20040505

hda : windows XP
hdc : Linux Mandrake 9.2

'df' ...

4.9G 2.9G 1.8G 62% /
14G 10G 3.6G 74% /mnt/windows


Have tried IE6 SP1 install using two well known methods at
Frank's Corner and at

1) When invoking the command 'wine ie6setup.exe' a windows
window pops up with the following error message:

"Extracting file failed. Most likely caused by low memory
(Lowdisk space for swapping files) or corrupted cabinet

When checking available swap it is 500 mb. Free Physical
memory does seem quite low at 4 mb. Total memory checks
out at around the same as the swap
at around 500mb.

I guess I just need to know if the error message is
REALLY a low disk space message or the real
cause of this failed install is something else.

And the following terminal reply after the failed install
should be revealing however I need to know exactly
what it means...

wine ie6setup.exe
fixme:ntdll:FILE_GetNtStatus Converting errno 38 to STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL


Any suggestions from those who might be able to
help appreciated.

Did you ever fix this error. I'm getting the same thing installing Dreamweaver MX.

fixme:ntdll:FILE_GetNtStatus Converting errno 38 to STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
fixme:seh:check_resource_write Broken app is writing to the resource data, enabling work-around
I get tons of errno 38 messages. Also using 20040505.
