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.

Wine refuses to take form 1.1.3. I get the feeling this is the only piece missing in the puzzle for me to be able to play World of Warcraft. Could somebody tell me how to get Wine to work in version 1.1.3. I've already downloaded it, but when I access my winecfg it says that it's still at version 1.0. Assistance would be welcomed very much so. I am running Fedora 9 if that helps find a solution.
Wine-doors is an application designed to make installing windows software on Linux, Solaris or other Unix systems easier. Wine-doors is essentially a package management tool for windows software on Linux systems. Most Linux desktop users are familiar with package management style application delivery, so it made sense to apply this model to windows software.
Yeah, Warcraft is something completely separate from World of Warcraft. My account is Burning Crusade too so the "World of Warcraft 2" thing it has won't be enough for me to play.
If somebody could just tell me how to delete the old version of Wine that would be fantastic. I can't find the button to uninstall wine 1.0, but if somebody could tell me how to do that then I could easily get 1.1.3 which has been proven to WORK with World of Warcraft.

You could use your package manager to uninstall wine. I just realised what WoW stands for, lol. I found this:

Apparently the config.wtf file is in the WTF directory.
Alright... so I made those changes to my config... and it worked... somewhat.
Instead of me typing the command in Terminal, having the wine virtual desktop thing come up, and crashing at that point... I typed the command in terminal, got the virtual desktop, watched the opening cinematic... then it crashed. So I rebooted my computer and tried again... only to have the same thing happen. Once again, I rebooted my computer and this time I tried to skip the opening cinematic by hitting the escape key... it crashed when I did that.
I'm going to try taking out the secondary wine desktop and a few things with the configuration. I noticed in the configuration that a few things were in the original that weren't in the one you gave. So, I'm going to try porting the stuff in the original that isn't in the one you gave me to the config and fill in some holes. I think that will fix this. I still have not upgraded to Wine 1.1.3 so... I suppose I should do that first. Wow... I feel dumb now.
