That stuff about .dlls probably doesn't apply. For some reason it
slipped my mind as I was replying that your message indicated
"winradio.sys"... to which the above DOES still apply. It probably
won't work as drivers usually don't work with wine. That may changed
in the future, but currently, most drivers just fail (and for good
reason... they want to be "below windows" and wine implements most of
the part of windows to support regular apps. As I said, this may
change... but currently, I wouldn't expect your app to function).
