What problems are you getting? Does it install at all? Can you post any error messages or logs?

Alternatively, click here and go to the page for Crossover Office. On the right hand side are 2 links - 1 to buy it and 1 to try for 30 days. I have just installed Photshop 7 and it appears to work ok.

Maybe this'll help.

i wondereed how long it'd be before wine get's you ;-) there is a compatability database at winehq.com (i thnk) which lists how people got certain apps to work. i'd strongly advise you to only ever use wine as a last resort. e.g. gimp IS very good and competent... just try it and it will save you so much wine related headaches. it's very seldom worth the hassle.
