hello, wine is indeed already installed, it does not produce a menu entry on installation, rather when you install a program within wine, try running winecfg from the command line

If wine isn't showing up in menu
go to System>Preferences>Menu
check box for wine to make visible.

On Slackware I had to run winecfg to create wine settings for user and make wine to work.

Use the command line.

Run winecfg to configure Wine, and wine path/to/windows/executable.exe to run a Windows executable.

What do you mean with "not working"? We can only help you if you give us the errormessages you get.

@EDDY1: wine is not a graphical application, it is a commandline tool. Therefore you will get no entry in the menu.

I am using Debian Sid, and wine itself is not a graphical tool. winecfg is indeed, and the uninstaller, too. Other than those, I only get menu-entrys for programs installed via wine.

But may be this is only a misunderstanding.
Anyways, we have to see the error-messages for further help with this.

I don't knowq why but my lenny installation had wine installed from first boot< at that time I never found a reason to actually use it with various problems I was having just learning how to use the system, maybe it's time for me to boot up the optiplex and see what it was that I thought was actually wine at least inquire.

That is astonishing, wine was never part of a standard installation, and cannot be selected at install time in Debian.
