we need to know you distribution. There is no such thing as Linux 9.

It will be something like Redhat 9 or Mandrake 9 etc.

Glad you enjoyed it!

I agree with that! Just dual boot and use the software made for Windoze
where it works right - in Windoze. Everything I tried to run under Wine ran
like it was drunk, and what a pain to get the thing configured...
