Hello ;)

i'm using linux opensuse 11.1 , and wine 1.1.9.
Is wine able to run  Visual Studio 2008 pro ?

it does not look so : http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?bShowAll=true&bIsQueue=false&bIsRejected=false&sClass=version&sTitle=&sReturnTo=&iId=16635

Which option would be the best for a regular use ? :
- mount the iso ?
- burn the iso and mount the cd ?

 I'd like to mount my visual studio iso to use it with wine if possible (see if it works, and avoid dual boot if ok).
After mounting the iso i'll need to find the setup.exe path and i guess wine can run this with something like $ wine path_to_the_setup.exe

Here's what i tried : 
i did a # mount -t iso9660 -o loop /media/iomega_hdd/myfile.iso /media/iso but then it tells me the OS does not support iso 13346 UDF specifications

with # mount -t udf -o loop /media/iomega_hdd/myfile.iso /media/iso it then tells me the iso is already mounted in loop :

# mount -t udf -o loop /media/IOMEGA_HDD/Iso/fr_visual_studio_2008_professional_x86_x64wow_dvd_ X14-26327.iso /media/iso/
mount: according to mtab /media/IOMEGA_HDD/Greta/Iso/fr_visual_studio_2008_professional_x86_x64wow_dvd_ X14-26327.iso is already mounted on /media/iso/ as loop

linux-d2g5:/home/fabrice # mount | grep iso
/dev/loop0 on /media/iso type iso9660 (rw)

what command is needed then ?

Other better ideas or tips ? 

Thanks ;)
