Zac, I'd be interested in that, too.  I think lots of people would be.  Are you thinking of building, and a Howto, for Stephen and PCLinuxOS? Or is building from source more or less the same for every distribution?

I use Debian Etch, but more or less in the same position as Stephen.  I looked at the Wine page talking about building from source, but was put off by the number of separate things that it talked about checking first - and, as he says, didn't really know what I might be looking at.

I'd certainly like to try rc4 - I've hit problems running Office 97 with VBA under 0.9.58, and even with rc2 - but rc2 is the latest Debian build I've been able to find.  ('Ovek' built that and posted it on his website).

Echoing what Stephen already said, I think your offer is really helpful, and I'd like to try your Howto for PCLinuxOS and see how far I can get on Debian with it.  I'll certainly post back some experience.

regards, Island
