What Wine ANNOUNCE file? I installed from an RPM provided via the WineHQ 
site. rpm -Uvh wine-20040914-... Maybe I missed a message when RPM was 
running, but I don't know anything as a user about an ANNOUNCE file.

Those building from source very posibly do, and this by itself could be 
a good reason to do that.

I will be happy to supply eithe patches to docs or new docs as I learn

I'm no longer sure about anything but most likely I was wrong. My 
machine is complicated:

CXO - Ver. 3.0.1
Wine-20040505 from source to run jack_fst

RPM wine-20040914

I wanted to leave my Quicken installation alone under Gentoo and do 
everything new under Fedora. I figured it would be a better test since 
there should be no conflicts. I may have mistaken where I'm doing 
things. I was booted into Gentoo earlier this morning but have jsut 
changed over to Fedora. Let's just do a reset and move forward.
