As an alternative to Wine you could try something like VMWare (or
Plex86). I use VMWare a lot to run my accounting package.
VMWare works ok on XTerms I believe. I've not tried plex86.
Also, you might want to try Crossover Office (www.codeweavers.com) as it
runs all of office 2000 pretty well so it might run the app in question.
I use CodeWeavers other product (Crossover Plugin) to run Quicktime et
al under Linux.
