You can use either Fink or MacPorts to install Freetype.

I'm new to using wine and this is all very confusing.  Can anyone please help me get this working or should I just forget about the whole thing.  Would it help if I installed ubuntu linux instead?  If I have to do install linux then i will need to know how to do that to  [Crying or Very sad] I have a cd for it but not sure what to do after I have booted from the cd.  If its possible could I just get this working in mac os.  And is this at all possible since I have the older ppc mac.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Freetype has several dependencies and the above sites address them.
