same for me with Ubuntu, also with Mandriva - and also with Xandros on the
Eeepc ( I installed wine on my Eeepc and it works fine)
just right click and select "open with"'
then in the dialog box that appears, just write /usr/bin/wine
and select the option "memorize the association between this kind of file and
this application" - so next time you will just have to double click on it to
launch the program
