    Hey,

    Install WINE as ROOT user and run Wine SERVER as root.

    now try running wine as NORMAL user. you'll GET IT WORKING

    i had this problem, then i downloaded winetools.

    Just google that should come up, its really useful for installing the various parts that software with windose needs.

    The only problem i found with it is that unless you are root in mandrake 9.2 i cant seem to install stuff.

    and i ran out of space on my root section.

    So reformatting and starting again!
