Thanks. I'll try that.
I don't mind coding some, if I can have a tight little Linux executable
in the end. I was hoping to use Wine as an example and hopefully write
something very small that didn't depend on Wine. I'm trying to avoid
putting Wine on a live CD (that is not my own creation).
Thanks for anyone's help... Is there a better mailing list to use?
This might be considered development. I guess I'll wait a while and
post something on the wine-devel list.
