That's what a development mailing list is for. This one is for users, like
you and me.

Good luck. I've seen people do things like this on other lists and it never
works out.

Very good. Have you read the DOS-Win-to-Linux-HOWTO? It's probably on your system
in /usr/doc or /usr/share/doc, or you can find it on <http://tldp.org> (the Linux
Documentation Project).

Did you just go and ask for help like you did here, or did you describe the
problem in detail?

Too bad. Perhaps he should have given you this link:

Before anyone can help you, we need to know what the problem is. Okay, so
Wine freezes your computer. Is there any error message shown? How much does
your operating system deviate from stock? Which packages did you use to
install which version of Wine? What else did you have running?

Much. I'm no spelling or grammar nazi, but man... I mean, how does "thanks"
become "ty"? And on first reading I assumed when you said "al" you meant
"all". Also, if you hadn't translated that last line, I would have assumed
that the use of "poof" was name-calling. I'm still trying to figure out what
a "mer pee" is, but I suspect it's idomatic.
