    Hi yadum,

    You may need to install wine, from the command line run:

    as root

    # yum install wine

    You should than be able to run winxp .exe files.

    I hope this has been of help.

    Hi yadum,

    I am asumming you have internet access.

    You may have to become root user (super user) or use sudo command;
    ( If in any doubt use man pages: ie man sudo)

    At the CLI (command line interface) type the following from a terminal console window:

    # man sudo (as root)

    $ man sudo (as you, a standard user)


    You may need to install wine, from (CLI) type the following from a terminal console window:

    as root

    # yum install wine

    This should install the application for you.

    I hope this is of help
