Question Wine configuration confusions

Well, I am running SuSE Personal 9.1 and i am trying to get wine up and running with a windows xp hd as a secondary. I have gone in circles a million times now, and can't seem to get anywhere. If anyone can lead me into the right direction on how to get it running with the existing windows hd i would greatly appreciate it.

Are you trying to use your existing WinXP partition to run wine?? That can ruin your XP.
here is my suggestion try using a fake partition to work like C:/
Even otherwise there is nothing much we can help you with if you dont specify your problem a little more explicitly.

Have you checked the Wine HQ out? If you look thru their application database, you can generally find the weird window's registry settings that you have to make to get some of the popular windows applications working. Good luck.

Are there any applications in particular that you are interesting in running?

Not exactly enough info here to troubleshooot whatever your problem may be, but google for Winetools, download and install it. Use it to set up your wine.

DON'T try to use wine on your Xp partition. That's not what wine is for.
