Yes, you are correct. This is what I intend to do.
[#] I ssh into server1, and run a wine application.
[#] With that app running in the background, I ssh into server2 and run another wine app.
[#] This goes on to 10 different servers.. 
[#] Once an app finishes running (in any server), I need to detect that and re-run the app with slightly different arguments.
 .... and I want to script this whole thing :)

I'm still new to shell scripting and i'll RT(F)M to get that going! :)
