    Installing windows programs


    I have very limited usage with slackware and I don't know what is going wrong. I have a wireless card that requires its own software or drivers to use, and I tried running the slackware config for wireless and it did nothing. I also tried to just simply install the software but when I tried to run the exe file, linux didn't know what to open it with.

    Please help...

    I tries WINE and I downloaded it and unzipped it and when I tried to install it, it didn't do anything. It just asked me if I wanted to run the executable file and then it just sat, and did nothing.....any ideas???

    Thanks-
