    Need Step By Step Wine Install


    I'm having problems with the windows installer for wine. Does anybody know of a Step By Step guide to installing and configuring wine allowing for pretty much anything that can go wrong and the solutions to them.

    Thx, Cheers..

    i'm not trying to install a windows program, i'm actually trying to install and configure wine itself so i can use some of my windows programs. it's the configuration and setup that's causing me a problem. i'm following the prompts through wine tools.

    I just installed wine tools, and ran some of the BASE SETUP stuff (DCOM98, arial fonts, etc), but for some reason it won't install either Arial fonts, or Internet explorer. When i try arial, the download stops at 3% and i have to cancel, and internet explorer says "download failed".

    anyone else have this problem?
