    Wine and RCT3


    Hey guys as you have probably already guessed I am pretty new to linux. I just love everthing about it except for the installing programs thing. I have gotten Wine from the automatix program and I am trying to install RCT3 I have the disk in my drive but i have no idea where to go from here. I can pull up wine with the winecfg command but i do not know what to do from there. Any help on this situation or even some basic wine knowledge would be helpful....Thanks!

    to run a program with wine just
    Code:
    wine theprogram.exe
    or
    wine theinstaller.exe

    cd /home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/
    and look for Program Files folder and launch the executable directly

    So how to you get to program files in the terminal ? I put in the:
    Code:
    cd /home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/
    It went down one with out saying anything else so I guess it was successful.. yes I put in my user name where the the "yourusername" was. I don't know how to get to the program files from there though, or even if it was supposed to open another window or something around those parts.
