Nothing more than solitaire...

I've tried lots and lots of stuff, fiddling with the various configuration options again and again.
Solitaire works most of the time.
Notepad doesn't let me enter text.
Calc displays the numbers in the wrong place, but otherwise works.
Street Atlas USA 8.0 barfs completely. Not even close, in spite of being in the database.
Agent does not exhibit proper internal windowing behavior, and crashes when
I attempt to connect to the network, though at least it works well enough for me to read some old stuff I have saved in there.
PSP 5 doesn't even try.
Wincake (old win16 version) loads, but can't get past the MIDI setup. It
insists on barfing on an error about not finding the Windows driver for my
soundcard. I have tried it with fake windows with a fake local registry...
American Heritage Dictionary (old version right around '95) can't find its
fonts, nor can it reference the location of any of the files it needs. It
needs its fonts, and its files. I have its fonts installed in Linux, but I don't know if that will make any difference or not. It's a very font-specific program, since it uses custom fonts to display all the funky charactersin the pronunciation guides.
IOW wine has not impressed me as a viable alternative to continuing to dual boot.
