Arrow Running Directsoft 5 Under WINE

Hello all,
I'm going to post yet another Linux question to run DS5 under WINE.
Here's what I'm running:

Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Laptop
Linux Distro: Debian Squeeze 6.05
Wine v1.01
Direct Logic 05 #D0-05DR
Serial Communication

I am aware of the compatibility list for DirectSoft 5 and AD software. I am capable of running the software in virtual box but that just brings me back to the frustration of window’s.

I can successfully run the software in wine if I adjust the DS500.ini COM*ENABLE= to 0’s. I have tried linking the ttyS0 to com2 (symbolically) with the COM2ENABLE=1 in the .ini and the program hangs.
Link code:

 ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /~/.wine/dosdevices/com2
I have also changed the permissions of ttyS0 to 0644 with:

 chmod 0644 /dev/ttyS0
And the program starts, and runs but will not communicate with the PLC. I am running OP-WINEDIT Optimate configuration software just fine in wine with com2 linked to ttyS0.

There was a post back in 2006 about this and they did it using Ethernet. As that’s not an option for the D0-05DR I need to get the serial working.
Can anybody throw me a bone who is Linux savy?
Thanks in Advance.
