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 don't want to be a pest but can you 'splain? Do you mean make it run on wine to be Windows 7, like Wine running Win7? Or is that your way of saying, if I must run a WINDOWS ONLY product Im stuck using Win7?
I dont know anything about tweaking a wine install. Which is bummin me out because I dont want to run my Adobe CS4 products on my Win7 install. Feel foolish beating my 'Go Penguin' drum around my microsoft lovin friends.
Photoshop 6 runs like a charm on my Wine tho
To continue with response, I set windows version to Win7, and moved install files to the win drive. Something thats kinda curious is..
If i run it with the Wine installer/uninstaller it breaks and shows error message right away. If I browse with a file manager (Dolphin) and double click on the Setup.exe file is starts to run(But twice, since I double-clicked). It seems like its taking a while but it might be working.
Have you tried something like Crossover? Its an improved commercialized version of wine that will often run things that wine won't by default (and in some cases, won't run things that wine runs). It can be installed without having to remove wine, and it might work better for you. It costs money to buy but you can get a trial if I'm not mistaken.
