Open up a terminal, navigate to the directory where the dc++.exe file is kept, and then type, "wine dc++.exe".

Easy peasy.

Open a terminal, CD to wherever the file is and type

Code:
wine dc++.exe

Wait a minute ... it is installed in Windows? To run a Windows program using Wine it has to be installed in Linux.

Installing your Windows application on Linux may be as simple as running the installation executable with wine. For instance `wine setup.exe` and then running the installed binaries with wine as suggested previously.

Move it to your "linux" Fedora 8 and find the install/setup file, right-clicking should ask you if you wish to run in Wine, confirm.
Chances are it will now install and run like it does in windows, if it requires more permission, relog as root and retry, or do it in terminal after typing "su", then your root password and change to the directory and install with "wine dc++.exe

Right-clicking is not recommended by the WINE team however. I personally have tried to install a program that way, and it did not work, however when I did it in the terminal it did.

You should right-click in the window where it is, select 'Open Terminal Here'* and type in 'wine dc++.exe', assuming dc++.exe is the program name.

*I am assuming Fedora 8 has that feature. If it doesn't, open a terminal the normal way and CD to the file directory.

i installed wine ...and then tried navigated to the place where dc++.exe file was there in widows c drive...right clicked on it and opened with wine..
it opened just like windows but all the things what i had shared was no more shared ...and in our college one needs to share a minimun of 20gbs in order to use dc++...
when i put the files for sharing the hashing of files started ....was able to share almost 4gbs
then fedora got hanged n now whenever i start fedora again i lose all my shared files...
