I have the appropriate rpm from sourceforge And it works great. All I had to do was copy /usr/share/wine-c and edit the config file that was automatically created the first time I ran wine.

well ok there is new rpms that came out not too long ago for redhat 9 so maybe you installed the wrong version before, and as for the tar.gz, who knows, i know i don't :P...anyways, try to rid any trace of wine off your machine and make sure when you do that the .wine folder in your home directory doesn't exist, and then install with rh9 rpm on the sourceforge site...and then use winetools to create your fake c drive and then give it a go...it is a tedious battle but it may be worth it in the end, and hell what do you have to lose, it ain't working now

I got it working, each time i want to load a .exe i have to move it to my fake program files folder, then run wine from the command line, i got winamp( yes i know XXMS), and Trillian working(which probably has a linux port anyways, but that's not the point)... good luck with yours
