Following the process listed above with Money 2004 Standard OEM CD creates a good install where all features of Money appear to work.
What does not
The step where you specify /postreboot to does not appear to be required. There are some errors with the Money installation that manually copying in the files corrects. Clicking on drop down menus (e.g. category of expense) results in the wrong thing being selected. Clicking on a web link also does not work and causes money to crash.
What was not tested
This is only after a few runs of the software. I didn't try to break it, only to check that all the things I use work.
Overall, it works great with few minor irratations.

2015-04-20 Admin note: the following steps were extracted from a test report filed for Wine 1.4.1 and may not be relevant to current Wine.
A few steps are required before launching MS Money's "setup.exe", but then the setup runs perfectly and the installation succeeds as expected.
1) Do a "export WINEARCH=win32" to make sure Wine runs in 32-bit mode.
2) Use "winetricks" to install these 3 packages: - "ie6" - "msmxl3" - "corefonts"
3) When Money runs for the first time it will ask, â€œdo you have an Internet connection?â€ Answer â€œnoâ€ to avoid online content that will be useless and outdated anyway.
