Please excuse the error in my post Gerard.  I actually _did_ use
to install wine as stated in the Wine User Guide from Wine Developement Hq
but specified the wrong program in my post.

I now have sol working :-)

Still having problems getting most dos program working using
wine c:/path/dos-program.exe.

I was able to run a dos version of cat but could not get it to cat a file,
all I got was the help when you don't specify a target file.  Command was:
wine c:/1bin/cat.exe  c:/1bin/cat.doc - both files are in that directory.

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.
