Microsoft .chm file and wine on Linux

Hi guys,
I'm trying to open Microsoft .chm file with wine on Linux but when it opens its only the content tab on the left pane that the text gets displayed i.e the table of content but the right pane where the content of the pages are meant to be displayed is blank.I will appreciate any assistance that can help in getting Microsoft .chm working on Linux. I'm running fedora 13 and i installed wine via yum. Thanks guys

You don't need Wine to read a chm file: just
yum install gnochm
and you have a chm reader.
