Wineskin has their own support forums, please use them.  The program's
author would appreciate this.

We can only help those who use 'vanilla' Wine here.  It can be
obtained either through MacPorts or Fink.

I highly suggest installing XQuartz 2.7.1 before using Wine as Apple's
X11 product installation will cause problems with Wine.

Also, the Applications Database should contain a 'How-To'.  That is
where they belong.
