Socket problems. . .

	I'm new to wine, so I'm kind of stumbling around in the dark trying to
make heads or tails of the documentation. I'm trying to get a working
installation of wine and I'm having some troubles. 
	I've tried downloading the source and using the wineinstall script and
that has stopped at several different spots with errors that I don't
understand, the last one was Error 2, this during the compile stage.
	However, what I'm trying to figure out now is what the fuck is this
socket thing? When I try to run wine I get the following error message:

wine: lstat /tmp/.wine-aharris/server-301-829b5/socket : No such file or

	I've tried creating a blank file in that spot, but that gives me this

wine: '/tmp/.wine-aharris/server-301-829b5/socket' is not a socket

	What is a socket and how do I put one in the appropriate spot?

Thanks in advance. :-)
