[Wine]Complete Linux newbie!

wine --version

just to set things up, and then 

wine notepad 

to start a simple app. If that works, then you need to do an install
of your Windows app. Mount the cdrom, then cd /mnt/cdrom/XXX to
whereever the install program is. (Usually called install.exe or
setup.exe) Then tun

wine install.exe 

and see if it works. In my experience you should look at the wineHQ
App database before you do this and try installing something that's
known to work.

Good luck,
