    I'm sorry. I don't get it. What do you want? Run/install a Windows program w/ Wine?

    Most distro's have Wine installed as a standard. Watch out w/ Suse 10: for MS Office you need to remove the installed Wine version and install version 0.9.1 from the Wine site.

    So just pop in the CD and double click the app you wanna install. If you're lucky Wine supports it and installs it into: /home/your_name/.wine/c_drive (or something like that). Check on beforehand what your virtual c-drive is in /home/name/.wine/dosdevices/.

    Good luck.

    P.S. I think this is amore useful wine site than the official one: http://www.frankscorner.org

    If it is an .exe that is not on a CD but on your harddrive, usb-stick, floppy etc, etc you open up a filemanager (i.e. Nautilus for Gnome) and double click that .exe file. Or, to watch the error messages from wine, you open a terminal window and type: "wine instal.exe".

    The program Wine is on the CD of your distro, and probably already installed. Just type in "wine" in a terminal window to check. Else, go to the official Wine site and download it (www.winehq.com/site/download).

    Good luck!

    P.S. On a computer, especiallly a Linux box, you should not be afraid to "experiment", but always beware for data loss.
