Oops, I was thinking you would use wineinstall.  /usr/local/bin is not
on root's path on Mandrake, I think, for security reasons.  Might not be
on anyone's path.  You can change that in the shell startup files,
environment variable PATH.

The shared library error you can fix by having root add a line


to /etc/

and run /sbin/ldconfig

or set the environment value LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include /usr/local/lib.
