problema wine...

hello everybody...
nice rule that one that not allow me to use a url... i needed it...
anway, sorry for my bad english, i'd need help for wine.
I'd like to run a free program for windows in mi Debian Sarge, using wine (i'm not interested in cross over).
after trying to use Power Tab all the fonts are damaged in the windows opened by wine, so there are 2 problems now: 1) ALL windows applications don't work by wine 2) i cant read anything because fonts are all strange images.
thank you!!!

There are two possibilities that come to mind immediately:

1. You need to install the truetype fonts the application wants to use (Do you have a legal Windows disc and license? if so copy over the fonts, providing you don't use Windows and those fonts on Linux simultaneously)

2. You may need to change the version of Windows that wine reports to the application (e.g., if it is claiming to be Win98, change it to claim to be Win2K)
