    wine help

    Well, I installed the wine package, and it didn't work
    [ghosts@localhost Desktop]$ wine
    Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...]   Run the specified program
           wine --help                   Display this help and exit
           wine --version                Output version information and exit
    [ghosts@localhost Desktop]$ wine help
    wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\help.exe": Module not found
    [ghosts@localhost Desktop]$
    So I tried un-installing it...
    [ghosts@localhost Desktop]$ rpm e- wine

    looks to me like wine was working fine. You just were not pointing it towards a windows executable. Try downloading a simple windows program and running

    wine program.exe

    and see what happens
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
