Be aware that Greg Turner is working on a DCOM implementation for
Wine. He has some initial tests running (not just DCOM but binary 
compatible to Windows).

One of the problems he identified was the fact that a number of
Linux programs provide DCE-RPC services on Linux: Samba (as the oldes
and most advanced program), DCE-RPC itself and DCOM. This mess would 
require some kind of DCE-RPC "portmapper" to sort out.
