Mine is from the CD-ROM that came with the 19th Edition, which I bought
several years back, but opened the CD package last night. The files are
dated from late August to September 2000.

I am running Debian Sid (updated this afternoon) and the 0.9.28 version
hasn't migrated yet. On this machine this is the first Windows software
I've tried to install, so the Wine installation is clean.
I did have some success by setting Wine to emulate Win98. The first

(shareware I think--Active Beacon Wizard and GeoClock) and died in a
I just wiped ~/.wine and started over, this time not installing the
shareware. Everything seems to have installed okay and the installer
asked me to reboot to which I clicked OK ;-) and I got another page fault.
I just did it again and told it not to reboot and got another page fault.
It looks like I've installed the software relavent to the Antenna Book so
the next step will be to see how it works. Many of the programs are for
DOS, so I guess it'll be DosEMU time for them. :-)
