What works

Crashes when Wine runs setup.exe from the root of the installation CD disk.  However, the installation CD disk contains an image of the software as it needs to be arranged on the hard disk.  The installation workaround is to copy a directory from the installation disk to the Wine C: drive:

-   copy the directory called vfp98 from the installation CD disk to /home//.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/vfp98

Microsoft Visual Foxpro 6 will run by having Wine execute the EXE file:  /home//.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/vfp98/vfp6.exe

If you need a FoxPro configuration file to work when FoxPro starts up, copy your config.fpw file to the directory  /home//.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/vfp98

When FoxPro is running, as far as I can tellthe whole application works without problems.

What does not

Everything I've used works well.  I've imported both dBASE IV and Foxpro 2.6 databases and programs without any issues.
