I think the first question you need to think about is: are there linux-kinda-tools for the windows-apps you want to use ?

Make command doesn't exist ? Do you have a compiler on your system ?
I don't know if you installed SUSE-Personal ? AFAIK Suse-Personal doesn't have a compiler by default.

I can't tell you much (yet) about using wine..

Another great tool is google

In order to be able to run programs in wine, you have to get your wine configuration file set up properly. Read the wine documentation for that.

To actually run the program, from the command line, you type "wine program.exe" and it will try to run the program. Not all programs work. you can to to to see more info on your specific program, and any tips about making your program work in wine.
