What happens when you type wine in an xterm ? It should come up with a window letting you know that you didn't provide any arguments. You'll probably then need to configure the paths to your existing windows partition (if applicable) and so on. - Wine isn't an emulator, incidentally (Sorry, bad joke).

Also, have a quick squizz at the info over at

MX 2004 is currently unsupported. Plain old MX can be made to work though
