Thanks.  I'll try that.

I don't mind coding some, if I can have a tight little Linux executable 
in the end.  I was hoping to use Wine as an example and hopefully write 
something very small that didn't depend on Wine.  I'm trying to avoid 
putting Wine on a live CD (that is not my own creation).

Thanks for anyone's help...  Is there a better mailing list to use?  
This might be considered development.  I guess I'll wait a while and 
post something on the wine-devel list.
