Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I would like to know how to install WINE on my computer. I downloaded both the WINE rpm and the WINE development tools rpm from WINEHQ for SUSE linux 9.1. I also installed them with YAST I would liketo know what I have to do now to be able to use it.
I tried doing that and this is what I got, maybe I am missing something:
jose@rn103188:~> cd /home/jose
jose@rn103188:~> wine chemsk50.exe
Warning: the specified Windows directory L"C:\\Windows" is not accessible.
Warning: the specified System directory L"C:\\Windows\\System" is not accessible.
Please use the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts\LogPixels
to set the screen resolution and remove the "Resolution" entry in the config file
fixme:win:SetWindowTextA cannot set text "Unpacking ACD/Labs Software..." of other process window (nil)
by looking at this does it seem that I may have not installed something properly or am I missing a component?
by the way if you want to try to see for your self the program that I am trying to install using wine is
Chemsketch 5.0 which suppossedly on the ACD labs site is workable in linux.
To me it looks like your config file is messed up. Take a look at XWine (has a GUI method of configuring WINE, you want a virtual Windows drive if it asks) - http://darken33.free.fr/index.php?cat=2&rub=21 (probably installable through YaST). Installing WINE properly doesn't guarantee that your program will work properly though, it is still considered alpha quality by the authors.

I installed the Wine that came with my SUSE 9.1 distribution CD this time (to make sure that they were the proper files) and then I installed xwine fromt the site you gave me. Do I have to download the GNOME desktop now for this to work?
What is the difference between the KDE desktop and Gnome? I just want to make sure that all the stuff that I have installed on my computer wont be erased or be incompatible if I download GNOME
Did the XWine window still not popup? That is pretty much the output that you expect when you run a GUI app from the terminal.
If you install GNOME, it won't erase anything. GNOME and KDE are actually fairly similar, though I find GNOME to be slightly faster, while KDE has more programs and is easier to configure. If you do install GNOME, I would recommend doing it through YaST since it can be a real pain sometimes. If the window doesn't appear, you can try installing GNOME.
I wouldn't normally say this, but if the program is for your studies, it may be worth using Windows. It would save you a lot of bother (which may all go to waste if it doesn't work on WINE) and it will work more reliably on Windows.
If you would still like to try WINE, have you tried the button/dropdown on the window to see what it does? There isn't much point re-installing XWine or installing GNOME if it got that far. I don't have it in front of me so I'm afraid that I can't investigate what it going on fully.
