Iam very new to fedora how do i........


Setup wineX 3.3? i need step by step, this is my first time using any type of linux. I'am using fedora core 1 no updates. If i need updates you will need to walk me though those as well. I'am doing this on a pentium 166 with 64meg ram. i will be putting this on my AMD 2500+ system after i learn more about it.

well do you already have it? if so what file type is it ?
if not, then i'll explain cvs below ...
open up a terminal and type the following :

cvs -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login
When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

you will then have a "winex" folder in your home folder after the lines above ... run the "wineinstall" script in the tools/ folder ...

tar -jxvf winex3-3.0pre1.tar.bz2
cd winex3 (or whatever the extracted folder is called)
read the README and/or INSTALL file ..
or when your inside the winex folder then :
cd tools
and then run the "wineinstall" script, just to have it spit out what
the next command will be after it completes a step ...
it kinda tells you what to do, to simplify things ...

well no idea why you linked me to yahoo.com but what that
error tells me is that you don't have gcc installed, so with that
said you must install the gcc package ;-)
