Had to do the following to get it too install and run. Note that if you use Money 2005 on Windows and want to transfer your data file to Linux/Wine you need the updated version of Money. Since Microsoft has pulled the plug on the update servers, you need to do the additional steps below also. To install the lasted Money 2005 version, Copy the contents of the install CD to your HDD e.g. to the ~/MoneyUpdate folder. Copy the contents of the \Program Files\Microsoft Money 2005\MNYCoreFiles from an existing, updated, working Money installation( I used my Vista install) to the ~/MoneyUpdate/money folder, overwriting existing files. For either Money version: Install IE7 (I did this using Winetricks) Run setup.exe from ~/MoneyUpdate or your CD if yo don't needed the patched version, and install Money. Note that the Accept/Decline and Finish buttons are all grey but it's not difficult to work out which one is the correct one to click. Change the Wine Windows version to Windows 2000. Ta da! You should have a working Money 2005.
