    i have the dvd btw. in my drive
    You found it then ... the DVD should have wine ... if you have not added the online repositories you should be able to install using YAST & it will pull the info from the DVD by default (assuming thats how you installed SUSE in the first place). Try it & see if it does what you need - you can always look for updates & add online repositories later if you need.

    well i didnt use the dvd to install. i used cd 1-6.

    i thought the dvd was just an instructional type thing.

    anyway, i tried adding that as a installation source and it worked, but then when i tried to sync with zenworks, it keeps stalling/freezing/saying its been added but cant sync.

    how do i fix THAT part? or does it even matter enough to fix?

    Did you disable the CD as an installation source?

    the only thing i have as a source now is:
    packman.unixheads....etc.
    and the dvd.

    the dvd wont work right...

    and i found an online repository for wine and everything else, but wine has a bunch of install packages... like devel and rpm's and all this crap.

    which wine's do i install? i have no idea.

    and say i install a program, where is the default directory for installed programs? like program files for windows.

    Did you do a media check on the DVD (in YAST) ... I would expect that to work if its the same version as the CDs you used to install.

    Start with the Wine base package - you should get a brief description of what each package is in YAST.

    Try using Yast to install it.

    Check this article for more info.

    The file you would want to install is:

    wine-0.9.53-11.1.i586.rpm
