Im wineing ab00t wine

Hello I am having troubles with wine .Let me talk you through my whole process of what I did .I went and got the rpm from good ole source forge ,I'm on RH9 i686 so I got the latest RH9 i686 package and installed it using rpm -i with not errounious messages. Then I ran the winecfg made a fake C;/ in my /home/sicone then set it to win98 24 bit cause I get an error on 32 .After all that sets up I install and run winesetuptk .It seems like its all good and installed ...but no. I can run notepad no probs . So I install the ie install script get quit a few error msgs but it installs and I can run it and it pops up ..and dosnt do a dang thing . I installed Half Life and it went thorught and said it was done .so I went to run it and it startes up and froze on the main screen with the audio continuing ! So I decided to uninstall and remove wine and start over .So I guess I need all the help I can get any would be apreciated.

Since you are using Wine rather than WineX, this link to Frank's Corner may give you some help.

If you are using WineX, this link to Transgaming's website could help.
