instead of a mandrake rpm you should be able to find a suse rpm perfect for your SuSE version ... somewhere on sourceforge maybe ... there are links on winehq somewhere .. .

Open with YAST in order for SuSE to install the package ... or "rpm -i" if my memory serves me right .. :-)

Thanks for the help, but i tried to use the yast program, and the only thing i can figure out what to do with YAST is update.. I was wondering if you could help me on how to use it? im still trying to learn SUSE. i like it so far.
