a few dumb questions about wine

Dear Folks,

I tried using wine after a long time.   I installed it using synaptic and nosed around to see what had happened. I am running squeeze amd64 on a newish amd64 novatech box.

I noticed that under the system tools menu window a wine configuration icon appeared.   I clicked on it and I got a little window appearing asking for lib32ns-mdns to be installed to allow internet compatability. I installed it.

I also googled about for instructions on using wine. Some sites said that the version of wine available in the debian respository was older than the latest versions of wine and recommended some solutions to this.

All I want to do is run MSOffice 2010 using it.

I use OpenOffice a lot but everyone I work with uses MSWord and I am having difficulty with compatability with image files and anchoring them to the page vs characters etc.  The .doc format doesn't like the page anchoring and the images keep moving around like poltergeists every time I save files and re open them again in the .doc format and they keep reverting to the character anchoring format from page.

I could also run the MSViewer program in Wine to check for problems and fix them as best I can.

I typed mikef@Vigor20:~$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/'Program Files'/'Internet Explorer'/iexplore.exe

and got a blank window appearing with a title saying Wine Windows Explorer and then a little prompt asking me to install gecko which I clicked on.

Then the blank window reappeared and I got the following output:
