Running Win32 application under Linux ?

Running Win32 application under Linux ?

I've read about wine and used VMWare. When testing SUSE v10.0 I've seen something that is like VMWare.

How else can a Win32 application be configured to run under Linux ?

Wine works for quite a lot of Windoze products, and Cedega is great for games (although costs money). Win4Lin and CrossOver Office are both great commercial solutions for running Windows apps on Linux too.

However, you could always just run MS within a Virtual Machine from Linux for free by using VMware Player and this tutorial.
