crossover office config ???


Well, after reading an excellent write up for crossover office, I took the plunge and "got it".

i've been able to install MS office 2k and IE6, i also thought that I'd installed outlook express, but for the life of me I can't find where it's gone to?

Another niggle is that my MSO 2k is the 4 disc "pro" version, and while I normally only have the first two disc's installed I haven't yet managed to work out how I install the 2nd disc (which is where I suspect the help files are, but as I can't get the bugger installed ???)

Any idea's or suggestions please (I've only got gnome installed, until kde 3.2 is released, and because of the crap "find files" facility, I can't locate most where cxo has put things).

regards

John


p.s. I spent most of the time during installing the office 2k, giggling to myself. The irony of installing an MS application under linux was worth the 40 quid alone and it amuses me even more when I look at a gnome desktop with IE and word icon's on it

no the ms apps should be in the wine directory of cxoffice as it was build using wine have a look at the wine folder in opt or your home dir and there should be the fake_windows dir in that and there are the installed apps
