I have a problem with the below advice - there is no regapi directory in 
the source I downloaded for wine-20050211.  Also, on my other box, I am 
still restricted to the wine-20040814 provided on the SuSE 9.2 DVD 
despite adding the ftp directory for suse/pub/current to YaST.  How can 
I get a more up-to-date version of wine for the SuSE 9.2 box ?


"Someone set a bad example
makes surrender seem alright;
The act of a noble warrior
who's lost the will to fight

And now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring out into a heartless sea
Facing life on a razor's edge
Nothing's what you thought it would be."
