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.

it's probaly not possible. that's an awful lot of microsoft you're trying to cram in. check the wine compatability database for specific info. can't remember the address winehq.com ? if in doubt, just google it.
Ok, I can understand wanting to use MSN IM in linux, but why MSN Explorer???
Why not use something like Mozilla or it's variations which is coded for linux, and doesnt require an emulator/helper app like Wine which'll just make it slower. Plus it wont have crap like the windows registry and I dunno how IE'll cope without that precious thing
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
i had guessed from his first post that he read the wine
page and it talks about wine being an emulator, and
a set or libraries to compile windows apps against to
run under linux, and he didn't realize that you need the
source code to the application plus a whole bunch of
work to do that.
internet explorer can run under one of the versions of
wine, but not well, but i bet that dialer would be tough.
if msn was selling internet access for $8 a month, you
can bet somebody would get a dialer app that would
work with it in linux, but as it is, it costs a lot more for
msn than normal internet access, so nobody's willing
to bother. Look on good and search for cheap internet
mmm, something smells good. wind out of the south
east. post is baking some honey something ceral.
smells great. what else is great is when they bake
those cocoa pebbles. You wouldn't think you could
smell that stuff from 5 miles away, but you can.
