My move to linux: live wine CD/DVD?


Well I played with Linux long time ago. Never went anywhere with it because I played games to much. Now I don't play games at all and started picking it up working with Linux once again. I do use this one program in windows that the developer has for only windows and is working on a mac version but no Linux. I wanted to run it in wine so I could make a full conversion to Linux.

I am planing to install Slackware 11 on my system but before I do that I want to make sure I know enough to get it working properly. I have been playing with about 5 different live CD/DVD's just to see how they are now I have a few questions I would like to know.

Can I create a live CD or DVD with wine if there is not one out already?
It could just be a basic Linux with nothing but network drivers, wine, the windows program. It would also help then I can use this program at any computer if I like as well.

Thank for all the help,
Kyle

in my experience, few obscure programs ever worked easily with wine. if your rig is suitable, you may well want to run a vmware instance of windows? as long as it runs ok, you'll get a lot better experience out of it i expect.

What program is it that you use? Perhaps there is an open-source replacement?

EDIT: Here is a pretty thorough list of Linux equivalents, listed according to their areas of use: http://www.linuxrsp.ru/win-lin-soft/table-eng.html

Sorry I did not specify what program I am running. It is a java phone emulator. It runs these .jad files that are created for phones. I have an Nokia N70 and want to use this app to run the phone programs in emulation mode on my computer. This .jad file is based on the jabber IM system. information on it is at www.mxit.co.za if you know anything about mxit.

The programs:
Mpowerplay
NHAL win32 emulator 1.0

Thanks,
Kyle
