Hello all,

I know that WINE development is primarily geared towards Linux, but we run a 
FreeBSD environment where we are.  We had a look at CrossOver Office but 
could not get it to run under FreeBSD.  A couple of us at CAIA 
(http://www.caia.swin.edu.au) took some spare time and worked to see if we 
could make it all work for our environment.

We managed to succeed and now have a MS Office 2000 installation working well 
under FreeBSD and WINE 20040505.

For anybody who would like a set of step-by-step instructions on how to do 
this, you can find our report at


Happy MS Officing under FreeBSD :-)
