I know you can get a Linux distribution called "Knoppix" which runs off a
CD, so you don't even need to install it. However, I'm not entirely certain
how one would install wine on it. Most Linux distributions (I use Mandrake
and Debian) have nice graphical installer wizards that any beginner can use.
However, wine should be installed from source. I'm going to assume you don't
know any Linux commands, so if you need help installing wine once you get
Linux running, e-mail me privately and I'd be happy to help.

I don't mind downloading/installing your game either, but if you want to go
that route (and wait for me to do the debugging) you may have to wait a few
days until I have the time.

I don't have Linux installed (yet). The report of 440 "Automatition
Error" is from one of the Linux testers.
Only thing I could provide is the source code, since I'm under the
impression that you (Mike) knows Visual Basic very well, spotting the
problem will be easy if it's an "obvious" problem.

Otherwise, I guess the only thing I can do is to get myself a copy of
Linux. Has anyone any particular version to recommend for my purpose
(install Linux and WINE as quickly as possible and find the bug)?
