    OK, newbie here... (Mac OS 9 and OS X user playing with Kubuntu...).

    Just installed wine, and it runs my own windows application just fine (a text to ascii to hex to binary program for first year students at work...), but bugger me if it will not run an 8051 IDE package that happily installed itself. I've tried:
    a). Clicking on the IDE.exe icon in the drive c folder.
    b). typing in "wine /home/lenny/.wine/drive_c/SiLabs/MCU/IDE.exe.

    So... wassup with that then?

    How do I get an installed windoz app to run??

    well be sure that a lot of win programs wont work with wine.
    May i suggest you to use better text editors than notepad.
    -emacs
    -vim
    -gedit
    -nano
    etc.
