The config file is described in <wine>/docmentation/samples/config, and
in man wine.conf.  Other interesting stuff is in <wine>/README and man

Doco in formats besides sgml is availabel at the Wine FTP sites (see
<wine>/ANNOUNCE), or feel free to use this nasty little sed program
to delouse the sgml:

sed -e 's/<[^<>]*>//g' -e 's/&lt;/</g' -e 's/&gt;/>/g' $1 |less -ni

Native shell32 wants native shlwapi and some other sh-- I don't
remember, shfolder?  shdocvw?  I think you must give it all native sh--
if you give it any, but - tried the builtin?  Good luck with IE 5.5,
BTW, folks are still putting in things to get IE 4 to work, I think.
