Ah woops, missed one extra point.
You can try one of Dan's scripts. Even though they're for Ubuntu, it might work.
For Debian Etch, you'll probably want something like Dan's Dapper script, found
I give no guarantees that it will work, but its worth a shot. If you're willing
to wait a bit, I will put Debian Etch/Lenny/Sid on my list of distros to build a
dependency script for.

> 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.
