Wine Question

Relatively new to linux, FC4.

I installed wine using YUM.
I have a windows executable and .ini file that i use in windows to connect to an iso7816 (smartcard) reader/writer connected to a com port.
can someone point me to an easy to follow tutorial on how to
1 - install and use programs in wine.
2 - run programs that dont have an installer (.exe).

I've skimmed a few tutorials but honestly nothing that is easy to follow or easy to read.
Or any quick help or tips would be appreciated.

Montreal, Canada

Hm, I don't thik that will be of much use, your going to have to find drivers for linux to do that.

As for wine, I just open a terminal and type "wine program.exe" *shrug*

Adding to what jollyjoice says, for wine to work, the current working directory (where you run wine program.exe) has to be one that wine recognizes according to the config. To set paths for wine run winecfg and under the Drives tab you can map any directories in your filesystem to vitrual windows drive letters. Ex:

D: -> /mnt/cdrom
E: -> ~/username/Documents
Z: -> /tmp

As a continuation of this, I have Wine installed and the Win version of Thunderbird installed to test it out. How can I uninstall Thunderbird from my system?

One of wine's commands is uninstaller. Type uninstaller at a command prompt and it'll show you a list of all the programs installed via wine. From there you can select one and click the button to uninstall it.
