A happy and successful new year for everyone!

I just release WineTools 2.0.9. You can download it at
http://www.von-thadden.de/Joachim/WineTools/. This release has some
minor improvements such as:

- cdrom is detected from fstab during Base setup
- IE6 now in english and german
- user info about installed scripts

WineTools is an menu driven installer for installing Windows programs
under wine. This software lets you install Windows software for Linux
under WINE:

    * DCOM98
    * IE6
    * Windows Core Fonts
    * Windows System Software
    * Office & Office Viewer
    * Adobe Photoshop 7, Illustrator 9, Acrobat Reader 5.1
    * many other programs

It also sets up your .wine directory in the correct way, downloads the
files to install from the web (only the free and shareware ones for sure
and for now mostly in german), installs Windows fonts and lets you
uninstall and configure your software. And it does much more than
Sidenet, although it uses a part of the configuration for IE6 (thanks
for that!).

WineTools was initially written by Frank Hendriksen and was extended by
me (Joachim von Thadden). It is licensed under the GPL. The actual
version wt209jo work with Wine versions 20040914, 20041019 and 20041201.
You can download Wine from here. Older versions can be downloaded here.

Note that you should definitely start with the menu entry "Base setup"
and create a new fake Windows drive. If you want to save your old .wine
directory, you can use the backup funktion of WineTools.
