Win4lin is a commercial product, I'm not sure of the site as i have never
used it. it does seem to be popular though.
Wine is an opensource package. it can be downloaded from many places but the
home is www.winehq.com (also see www.codeweavers.com).
if you're running redhat you might already have it. at a command prompt
type: wine --version
this will tell you if it is already installed and what version.
if it is not installed the i would wager that it is on one of your CDs.
one at a time mount them and check the RPMS directory for it.
trust me it's there some where.
wine comes in many forms: tar.gz, tar.bz, rpm, and deb. you are best off
starting with the one that was packaged for your system. later when you get
the hang of it, you might try some of the newer releases.
hope that helps

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of DOS,
and danced the skies on Linux silvered wings.
