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.

The last time I installed wine on a Debian system was under 2.2r3. At that time, a simple 'apt-get install' wine gave me all the files I needed. It took just a little tweaking to the wine.conf file and suddenly I was good to go. Strangely, things are harder now..
I have a new 3.0r1 system and after typing 'apt-get install wine winesetuptk' I still don't have a wine.conf file anywhere. At least not that I can find. I've scoured the net (including winehq) and can't find any step by step instructions that help me get from the 'apt-get install wine' phase to the point where I can actually use the thing. I'm sure I can find a sample wine.conf file somewhere, but I'm a bit confused where to put it and what to name the various directories (is it 'mkdir /viniosity/.wine/c_drive' or 'mkdir /viniosity/wine/c_drive' or something else?) . Can somebody help?
When I type winesetup it says:
no display name and no$DISPLAY environment variable
Info about my system: hda1 = windows95, hda2 = linux, hda3 = linux swap, system is a Cyrix 333MHz w/ 64MB RAM
