Hi Ivan. This is just fine. If I can get a binary install of Boinc with GUI, I 
will run that. But, excuse me if I've lost the plot here, but your initial 
posting to wine-users at winehq.com said.

Hello, I would like to ask all users running seti at home to join wine's team.

Now I may just be very stupid, but seeing a post to the wine-users list asking 
for folks running seti at home to join wine's team. Logically you appeared to be 
asking for folks who were running the Windows version of Boinc under Wine on 
a Linux based machine to join Wine's team as a sort of challenge to the 
Windows users that are running Boinc.

I would still prefer to run Boinc on Wine, more to try out Wine's 
capabilities. I'm also trying various music apps left over from my Windows 
days. Some work on Wine, Some don't. It's all a bit of an academic exercise, 
but definately without IE coming into the equation. Nigel.
