> I am a new Linux and Wine user.  I have successfully installed Wine in PCLinuxOS, and it is able to run an old Legacy program from Parsons Technology called Address Book.
> I then used Wine to install an old version of Davka Writer, a Hebrew word processing program.  The program appeared to install correctly, as far as I could tell.  The installation required a serial number, which I have.  However, when I try to use it, the Davka splash screen appears, then the program shuts down.  I have no idea how to debug this situation, so if someone can take me by the hand to try to get it working, I would appreciate it.

Regarding Davka Writer, you may want to look at Open Office instead. I
use it as my word processor, and I mostly deal with Hebrew documents.
What features does Davka Writer provide that make it specific to
Hebrew? Open Office handles RTL documents fine.
