WINE vs. VB Installation

I managed to successfully download and install WINE on my computer, running Redhat8.0, in hopes to download and install VB from my cdrom. When I run setup.exe (which I copied from the cd to my '~/c' directory) I get the welcome screen to the vb install or whatever, but when I hit the 'install visual basic' button a window pops up titled "Arial Bold" That says:
"Could not execute the following command:
File = C:/vb/setup/setup.exe
Parameter =
Directory ="

Well I might or might not figure this out before I get a response, but any ideas/help would be muchos appreciated.

NoDoze, don't despair, VB under Linux is possible:

BUT! WineHQ builds are not suitable for end users yet. If you want to run Windows apps under Linux you need to buy CrossOver from CodeWeavers. It's not at all expensive and your money will go towards helping the Wine community. CrossOver provides friendly guis and a higher success rate for Wine.
