Wine making me drunk!


It is probably just me , but I am having "a good ole' time" trying to install wine. If you know any tricks to making the instillation process easier, or more understandable. I need some help , never installed a windows emulator. Thanks for the help.

The trick is that, don't drink too much at a time.
Drink little by little, sip by sip and take a longer time.

Never had much luck with wine... Not enough documentation for help. So instead, I got VMware... Works great!! Check it out at http://www.vmware.com/download/

For support http://www.vmware.com/support/

Hope I could help
