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.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. 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 downloaded the source to Wine (the latest one), read the manual which said to do this:
make install (as root)
it compiled everything (took ilke 20 minutes) then installed the stuff. i tried to run a windows exe file and it gives errors that a ton of stuff is not working properly then the console window dies.
i also tried the method it said of "./tools/wineinstall" but that didn't work either.
no no no you don't understand, this is a file i KNOW works through wine. my friend on RedHat 7.1 built wine from the source and it runs Half-Life beautifuly. i tried to build it on Mandrake 8.2 and it didn't work
there's a big difference between installing wine and doing the 1000+ tweaks to it (and your system) to get it to run anything properly. after all these years of development it's still almost useless. your best bet is to ask your friend how he did it.
it should be dropped in your home directory somethig like .wine/wine.conf or something similar, also loof for it in /root most probably there is a global config file there. As for building wine that comes from transgaming CVS tree you need to run tools/wineinstall script from within wine directory
[root@host wine] ./tools/wineinstall
Was it wine or winex you tried? I have Mandrake 8.2 and I downloaded winex 2.01 (I guess) via CVS. I cant run anything unless I run it using winelauncher. When I try to run eg winword using wine /mnt/windows.../winword.exe it fails. But when I use winelauncher it works (winelauncher /mnt/windows.../winword.exe). If you are using winex, try this one.
