[Wine]Do I need to defile my machine, or is there a simple work-around

I'm also trying to get the MPLAB v7.20 working with wine.  I have the 
IDE up and running using winetools and installing IE and some other 
goodies.  So, when you get it working, keep us informed if you can get 
the MPASMWIN.EXE to return output messages to the IDE.  Check out my 
other posts on this list about my experiences.

I really need this to work asap since I'm going to the Microchip Masters 
2005 conference on the 19th.  I'd like to take gnu/linux with me.
