I was reading a book called Running Linux, in which reference was made to  
a programme called WINE.  This programme was described as a windows  
emulator which allowed linux to run Windows binaries.  Is this programme  
available?  How well does it function?

Yes.

Web site: http://www.winehq.com
Newsgroup: comp.emulators.ms-windows.wine

It works quite well on some programs, not so well on others. See the web
site for all kinds of information, including reports of what programs
work.



 
 
 

1. Wine,wine,wine - I need help with wine

Help
I down loaded and installed Wine to Linux 2.0.22 and Xwindows (XFree).
I think it's installed correctly.  I am getting a 'drive not found/path
not found' error.  I have my wine.conf in the right place (I think).
I'm using Win95 and hda3 and Linux on hda1.  I need a reality check.  Is
it hard to set up Wine?  Does someone have a working wine.conf file that
might guide me to a working wine.   Wine,wine,wine and beer. Ok I'll
stop wineing

Thanks
George
