Can I run this without it attempting to download the program to disk using wine???
First I couldn't understand what are you trying to do.
I reached this thread seeing the very interesting subject you have added.
Yes you can use some
programs of windows under linux using samba,but it would be very slow,a better idea would be to copy the windows directory in the harddisk(through samba) and use that with wine.Now if you use your windows program from another computer through samba it would be a little faster.
