Dual boot solves everything?

First of all, thanks to everyone with your input so far.  I've now been
able to get IE v6.0 up and running as well as a few other less important
applications.  Which brings me to a few more questions.

1. Since it is possible to use native DLLs with applications, can one
assume that on a dual boot machine with Win98 SE2 and Red Hat v8.0 that
it would only be necessary to install the desired application under
Windows, then add native DLLs to the Wine config file to get [almost]
*any* Windows application to function?

2. Each time I launch a program, a black window appears that seems to
make up the "shell" (for lack of a better term) for that instance of the
application.  This window is always somewhere around 800x600 pixels.  Is
there any way to not show this window and/or get the size to be
something else?  I am running in 1600x1200 resolution and only using
half of the screen is frustrating.

3. Is there an easy way within Linux/Wine to determine what native DLLs
the application should/could use?

Thanx again,
