Is that possible? This question has probably been answered before, but I stopped looking on page 4....

    Possible? Sure. Probable? Not really, unless you use a commercial version of WINE like Crossover from Codeweavers.

    Thanks for the fast reply mate.

    Is there any other type of program like WINE that will allow me to run Photoshop? (Probably a stupid question, but eh.. It's worth a try. )

    Thanks

    There are several WINE spinoff projects, based on the same code base as WINE. One is Crossover (link in my above reply) which focuses on running MS Orifice, Photoshop, and other productivity (i.e. work) programs. Another is Cedega (link), which focuses on running games, the whole games and nothing but the games. Both of these are commercial (i.e. costs money) projects.

    As far as other projects that are LIKE wine but don't use the same code...I'm not sure.

    Look around, there may be a free alternative. I've had good luck running Orifice and Dreamweaver MX using Crossover. I haven't actually tried Photoshop.

    Photoshop 7 runs quite well on FC3 under Crossover Office, even on a PIII 866Mhz.
