    i found the best thing to do is first run
    Code:
    wine
    by itself. this creates the .wine/drive_c directories. depending on the program you will need to install it. run:

    Code:
    wine /pathtoinstall/SetupFile.exe
    it can't be run from the windows partition. also try Frank's Corner for better explanations on using wine.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    hmm... maybe it is not compatible. not everything works in wine unfortunately. even worse is that wine experts are hard to find...

    oh yeah, you only need to use the wine command by itself the first time so that wine sets everything up. after that it's all good. sort of...
