> You gotta start somewhere I figure. I am enjoying wine 1.1.0 and have used it on and off mostly off for several years. Now I am getting serious and I haven't figured out the documentaiton. I got some bad advice from old docs which discouraged me. Anyway, where does one put the "native" dll's from one's windows installation? I know how to use winecfg to activate them and I found some info about which might be useful, but as stupid as it sounds I am not sure where to put them. There is no windows on this machine, but I have the dll's from one of several licensed copies of windows. The best guess I have now is that one places the native dll's in the ../drive_c/windows/system directory??? As opposed to the system32 directory??? The system folder is currently empty and the system32 has some small versions of dll's.

Why don't you start with all Wine and nothing windows? Then install your program and run it.
And then if you have some problems - tell us what they are.
