    Help to configure and use Wine/WineX


    I am new to using Wine or WineX.

    Can anyone let me know how to install and configure Wine or WineX on Redhat 9.

    I want to try playing my Windows games on Linux. Additionally, the games are on NTFS partitions.

    I have installed WineX, but cant figure out how to use it to start games on Windows partitions.

    Any help in this regard will be great.

    You don't want to, the NTFS driver is best in Read Only mode, writing to NTFS partitions of Windows XP can cause damage beyond repair.

    If you install WineX, Download the Point2Play application.
    You can use it to install your games from CD.
    It will mimic a windows installer
    And write it to the Transgaming Drive ( A folder in your $Home)

    And be sure to check the Transgaming forums, not all games work straight away.

    Whenever you have wine problems, your first solution should be upgrade to the lastest release. They release them often. the latest is 20050111.
