actually i am using wine-**.rpm file.
yes i had to rpm -ivh wine*.rpm as root because user syahid doesn't have the permission to do that.
and i am using winesetuptk to configure it.
yes, i agree with you with the part that the whole installation is not using a root account because the .wine folder was created under /home/syahid (wow! nice guess!). i run winesetuptk as user "syahid".
now my wine is ok and i am looking forward to run Lotus Notes 6.5.1 on it.
