Point #1-- you might want to try a newer version of Wine, as the one you
have is some 6 months old.

Point#2-- what good will it do to run Norton Utilites under Linux, as
there are no Norton functions that I can think of that would actually be
useful or work under Linux filesystems? I don't think that NU would even
recognize them.

It's your system, of course and if you want to do that, it's your
choice-- I'm just saying that the reason that Norton Utilities doesn't
run might very well have nothing at all to do with Wine, but instead
with the fact that NU is designed to monitor and repair Windows systems
and protocols that don't exist under Linux.

And as another post said, vxds are Windows virtual device drivers.
