My immediate trial is to install Irfanview to run in Ubuntu 8.10. But I did find the Wine which David so kindly explained. Looks like I'm installing ttf-liberation, winbind, wine and wine-gecko. I'm making detailed notes for family at http://www.sticksite.com/linux/ and like you, I expect this to keep me busy most of the winter.
Remember that we supply Answers to Frequently Asked Questions as well as 
the folks at Ubuntu.  Please read through them before asking questions 
here to avoid the old "Just the FAQs ma'am" messages.  However, if you 
eyes are as old as mine, you might miss the question and do feel free to 
post here with your question.
