A debugger error usually indicates that Wine is not sufficient to defeat
the program's copy protection (the CD cannot authenticate itself, even
when perfectly legal-- it can tell that it's not running under Windows
in some fashion, and that's enough to cause it to fail to authenticate).

The usual solution is to find a no-cd crack and replace the program's
exe with it as per instructions. I haven't gotten to installing SS2 yet,
so I don't know if there are other problems, but I do know that you
probably want to use the default emulated Win98 version-- SS2 even under
Windows needs all kinds of trickery to run under 2000 (which I did try),
and XP (which I didn't). So if you have Wine set to claim that some
version other than Win98 is running, set it back, at least for this
particular app.

Use the native version? Adobe just released Reader 7.0 for Linux. Or do
you need the full package? That sounds like more of a job for Crossover
Office; check their website at www.codeweavers.com and see if Acrobat is
a supported application. Off the top of my head, I don't know. CX costs
money, but I've used the demo, and it does do what it says on the tin--
meaning that it's worth the outlay if you need it.

Hope this did :-)
