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.

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.

I installed wine from the latest rpm made for mandrake, after I installed (carefully reading the documentation) winesetuptk, I ran the latest winecheck and got 80% Yea! (?)
I then got the 'winetools' from "Frank's Corner" and ran it, but when I went to install a program, something may have screwed up, because when I selected the setup.exe and began the install, a "half-formed" pop-up window opened on the desktop with the "windows instalation thingy" and locked up. I even let it sit for about 10 minutes, but nothing....
First, how do I properly install windows software through wine?
Second, I'm not too sure of the winesetuptk settings, I'm seeing both a 'c' and a 'fake_windows' directory in the $HOME/.wine/ directory, in the config file, I have:
hdb1 is the slave drive correct? If so, I took it off the system due to problems with it, so I'm guessing that I can delete that section? Should I delete it, should I go in and re-name all the drives below it (excluding x, y and z)
Assuming the lockup was due to a bad configuration, if I simply delete the current config file and re-run winesetuptk, or winetools (if anyone reading this is familiar with it,) will it automatically create a new configuration?
