OK, I'm doing something stupid.

Freshly installed Mandrake 8.1, no Windows anything except some
fonts. Both the included 20010731 and the cooker 20010824
give me the same result when I try to run any Windows setup
from CD: I get a burst of
pairs followed by nine
at which point winereal sucks 100% of available processor
slices and stays that way until I run out of patience (say an
hour or so on a 1400 MHz Athlon/DDR system.)
This looks somewhat familiar since WordPerfect did the same
kind of thing if you installed it without the compatibility libraries,
but that may just be wine's way of throwing a tantrum.
So I admit that I'm probably being thick, but what am I missing?
