Questions about W2K

Last night I reloaded the Windows partition with Win98.  I installed Juno 4
on it.  I was able to use wine pointing to that install.  It checked the
email and everything.  Got a font problem (which should go away when I
complete the fonts install), as well as I got out-of-space errors (specific
to Juno)... Do you think that if I install it inside of Juno that it would
work?  I have a question with that, I have tried in the past to use a sym
link pointing to the Win partition, to both a directory and a file.  If I
used the directory, it works inside of xterm, but not inside of say,
StarOffice...  If I pointed to the file, as soon as I made a change, it
would make a copy on the ext2 fs and loose the link.

Ohs well, I'm going to keep drilling down the avenue.

Thanks for your help.
