Welcome to LQ!!

What you need is WINE (Wine Is Not an Emulator) or the commercial version--Crossover. WINE should be available using your package manager. For Crossover, go here:

It is also quite likely that there is Linux software that does what you want to do. Try some searches here and on Google.

Sound server and activating my wireless

Hello thanks for the tip-helpful indeed.
I am usuing a hp pavilion dv1000 which has quick play buttons on top of key board that activates muteness, play, stop, pause, next, increase sound, and wireless. But since I installed Linux(fedora 7) I have been unable to use them. I cant even activate my wireless- I have been to the Network settings but it shows inactive. Please how do I activate my buttons and activate my wireless

2- my sound on banshee sound aweful compared to when I was using other windows media player, I have tried other linux media players but sound is poor-I cant even locate my sound server on the sound setting menu, is there any way I can improve my sound or adjust with an equalizer or some thing.

3- My mouse is also hyper active it keeps flipping pages unnecessary when I try to move the mouse. Can you help me overcome this problems. For the mouse I tried changing the control setting on the browser, which worked for a while and then after restarting the system the problem restarted again. So am forced to us an external mouse
