Finally am able to dual boot into windows AND PClinuxOS

I can finally boot into both operating systems.

How do I install the packages? I tried in install a sound one and just got the upgrades couldn't be found.

Also, what about wine? I would love to install it so I can see my windows applications? What are your suggestions?

welcome to LQ!!

First, please stay away from the big, bold, font. I had to turn the volume on my speakers all the way down....

Package manager: Assuming that your Internet connection is working, check to see that at least one repository is enabled. Here is the one I am using:

In Synaptic: Settings ---> Repositories.

WINE: Is available in the package manager, although it is not the very latest. You have to install WINE first, then install Windows apps.
You might also want to look at Crossover ( This is the commercial port of WINE.
