Grr my RoadRunner account is not posting for me so I pasted replies
into another account that works by POTS. The originals will probably
show up sometime.

Please excuse the error in my post Gerard. I actually _did_ use
to install wine as stated in the Wine User Guide from Wine
but specified the wrong program in my post.
I now have sol working :-)
Still having problems getting most dos program working using
I was able to run a dos version of cat but could not get it to cat a
all I got was the help when you don't specify a target file. Command
wine c:/1bin/cat.exe c:/1bin/cat.doc - both files are in that
I use dos versions of linux common linux commands where possible
to avoid confusion.
There must be a secret to running dos commands but I haven't found
anything yet in the docs.

I looked all over the winehq site for some indication of a "stable"
but didn't find anything like that.
I'm not very comfortable running a version that says:

but that's the best I could find.
BTW, I'm running Slack 8.0 with the 2.4.5 kernel.
