You can't run win98 in wine (well some have apparently tried, but they 
are more experienced and are gluttons for punishment). In fact, you 
don't even need Windows. That is the great thing about wine!

You use wine to run Windows programs, like:

wine /c/Program\ Files/Accessories/wordpad.exe

Assuming of course that you have wordpad in that location.

Go back and reread the docs, keeping in mind that you are not running 
Windows, and they will probably make more sense this time.

My real email is at dclark (or something like that).
