Ok, go to any terminal of your choice, make sure you are logged in as you, and that wine is in your path. On Ubuntu all this is done for you.
You may need to replace some of the path names with the ones you entered during Excel/Office 97 installation. If you didn't change them, you can safely type all these commands word-for-word.
Type The Fallowing Commands:
And then put in your name and initials, press OK, and your done! You don't need to do this again every time you open Excel, only the first to enter your name and initials.
Installing a service release for older versions of Office (Pre-2003) are not essential but are there if you need them.
Official details on Service Release 1 can be found Here.
You need to install this before Service Release 2(b) if you are going to do so.
