Ur gonna have a hard time running steam on wine, use the cedega CVS from Transgaming.com, or use the easier way, not always up to date, but is much easier. The prebuilt versions of this CVS is located here... http://www003.portalis.it/115/tb43hf...4jreoihde.html I think ur going to need to find the fonts somewhere else, just ask in a forum, and ull get ur answer (or google.. both ways work) dont expect it to work tho. (it should, I dont know, I have an account at transgaming.)

You are also running slackware, nothing against it, it runs like hell, but if you try to use your pc as an desktop pc also known as an workstation u could better use SuSe Linux, or Redhat cause they are just better and more simple to use as desktop. I have slackware running as my server for 3 years, and when my vacation begins i format it and i go try getting freeBSD on it .
I think also that u make more chances on other distro's.

well i tried freeBSD and i must say ripping my veins out with tweazers was more fun than trying to work with it. i've yet to have a problem with slackware since i started using it over 2 years ago.

ok i downloaded and compiled with ./tools/wineinstall and i got an error when it tried to install:
wine: relocation error: /usr/local/lib/libntdll.so: undefined symbol: casemap_lower
i've googled this but all i come up with are dead ends and "just compile it over"s.
any clue as to what to do?

Check the config file.
Look for "Freetype" under [fonts].
It should look like this: "Freetype" = "Y"
