I can only assume you're talking about


If so, you need to check what OSes are supported. IMO, Wine only goes as far as items compatible with Win98. If it won't work under Win98 it won't work in Wine. What are your terminal messages? Also do you have other apps running in Wine?

Arrow you may want to try cedega

Cedega is a commercial spin-off of wine. Don't buy it, just download the source code and compile it. You could also try qemu and some other programs that emulate entire OS's using disk images. Wine is by no means a complete really good most stuff runs emulator, it is very good though. Try different stuff post back, and so forth. Have fun and good luck.
