Dear Erik

Thanks for that starter.  I tried it.  Not much happened, or so I 
thought at first.  In fact new entries appeared in my menu.  Wine; 
Configurator; File Manger etc.  I am now assuming I do not need those 
four commands.

I went back to the user guide to see what to do next.  I cannot find any 
instructions on how to install an application.  I have copied a 
programme onto the HDD.  I looked in the user guide and nowhere does it 
say "Installing an Application".  I thought the section 3.1.1 - 
Application Settings might tell me.  I tried what was mentioned there 
and located the executable of the application I want to install.  I now 
have an entry in the Applications tab window and I have assigned Windows 
98 to it.

Any further helped desperately needed and much appreciated
