Hi Ivan and All,
Before receiving your email, I tried a reinstall and told wineinstall to
create its own windows directory instead of using my NTFS XP partition. I
tried Notepad again and it worked very well. I then proceeded to install
other programs, but some installs keep complaining about missing dlls. I
have both a windows 95 and 98 install cds that I could use to get dlls off
of, but how do I do that? Also, what dlls are recommended to get off these
Besides this issue, I am also experiencing an issue with the default font (I
tried changing it in the config file, but it did nothing to change this
problem). Check out this screenshot of AIM:
The font of all the menus/etc. is extremely hard to read, and I know that
isn't normal for windows. Is there a way to change this?
Thanks for all the help! I appreciate it very much since I am very new to

Please try the RPMs on my web site. They are specially designed for linux
The use of a real or fake win partition is a run time setting, it has
do with compile.
Uninstall wine, install my wine RPM, then open your KDE/Gnome/whatever menu,
to Applications>Emulators>Wine and click on Wine Setup, it will start a
configuration tool that will guide you through the configuration of wine.
choose the overwrite option when prompted.
