W(h)ineTo those

To those with wine experience:
The good news..Windows really has nothing I can't do without...but.
The bad news.....I installed Wine.(A version for Mandrake 9.1, which I am running). Apparently, it installed fine, but the only way to find it, is with 'Find files' (So it is there).
But it doesn't seem to run anything. I have Knoppix on a CD and was able to run notepad and Paint from Windows, with the knoppix Wine, so I tried with the Wine I installed on Mandrake, and nothing happened. Tried a couple other apps (paint, Word). Nix, Nada.
My main question is...Has anyone ever ran WinMx on Wine. Will it work? ? ? Whether file sharing is right or wrong, I am 51 yrs old, and have found songs that there is no possibility of finding on a commerial CD.
I will thank you now, just in case! ! !

yes. i have winmx running on wine. it can be done but i've got wine configured way different than what is the norm as i'm just reusing my existing windows partition. check your configuration and download the wine user's guide.
