Unhappy Problem with a DVD


Hello,

I'm training for the GMAT, I bought a few books with DVDs, however the DVDs only work in Windows. There are no GMAT DVDs for other OSes. How can I do? :'(

Thanks, Lenard, I know you, you helped me a great deal on the Centos forum
Will try the virtual solution you mentioned. WINE won't work, right?

Do not know as I have never used wine. I have used VMWare and VirtualBox both will work just fine. Virtual box can be configured to have a 'dual desktop' and VMware-server is free(register for serial number) for download also;

First, what is on the disk can you describe the contents ? Are there a bunch of *.exe files ? Or an index.html ? Is it browser based, flash based, just a window$ program ?

Looks to be a Windows application based on the PDF;
