Hi. I'm having troubles with WINE. I think it might be (strangely :P)
because of my windows XP instalation. Though, since I'm a bloody newbie,
I don't know what it could be. here I post my configuration file (that
is correct as soon as I can tell) and my error message (at the end of
the page)

I apologize for the lenght of this e-mail but I thought it would be wise
to post the WHOLE config file because. I hope this is the right list and
i hope somebody can help me... I'm tired of restarting every time i need
a windows application... I'm hoping wine will work fine on my PC given
my hardware as well as the type of app I'm planning to run.... DiabloII,
winmx, kazaa, visual studio, windows media player, etc. I've read the
man as well as the user guide and there is no mention of this error on
neither of them.... any ideas???

thanks a lot.
