    Re:Using Windows software under Linux

    What Linux distro do you have? Many of them have preconfigured packages. On my SuSE 8.2 system, wine is available at install time. I think RedHat does too, and Mandrake.

    I'd help you out, but I never use it, and really don't know much about it. :-\

    Go here, and read the installation guide. It will tell you exactly what to do for RH8

    Re:Using Windows software under Linux

    This is a fairly recent list of Windows softwares known to work under WINE with no additional tweaking. Software not listed there might: A)not run at all b) have not been tested c) require some or a lot of tweaking in order for it to work .

    Running software under WINE is, at best, slower than running it under Windows, and at worst, might crash your system.

    If, after all of this, you still want to try it, perhaps we can reach an agreement:

    If you read the instructions on the link CP posted, (and demonstrate you read them, of course) and you are getting errors, , I will be glad to help you.
