Hello!

Are you runnin' Fedora Core 1 or Core 2?
If Core 1, download wine-20040813-1fc1winehq.i386.rpm and use "rpm -ihv wine-20040813-1fc1winehq.i386.rpm"

If you are on Core 2, download wine-20040813-1fc2winehq.i386.rpm and install it with "rpm -ihv wine-20040813-1fc2winehq.i386.rpm"

Hope this helped!
Boby

EDIT: you have to do this from a console. It will install your wine. You can try also "rpm -qa | grep wine" and it will say if you already have installed it. Good luck!

Ok, let's say you have mounted your Windows Partition in /mnt/winC.
To run a program you'll use:
wine /mnt/winC/wincommander/wincmd31.exe

To run from a cd:
wine /mnt/cdrom/programm.exe

This are just examples. For you:
wine /mnt/winC/path/to/cloneDVD/setup-file.exe

Boby

EDIT: To use in some file browser, doublle click on an exe file and choose wine to open it.
