I was able to download and install the latest Wine build from the Wine
website, http://www.winehq.com/site/download-rh. There is a Fedora Core 3
build on that page. Download the rpm and install it with rpm -ivh.
I've only installed a couple of programs under Wine. I downloaded the
.exe install executables (or inserted the Windows CD), cd'ed to the
directory where the install file was, and entered:
$ wine ./install.exe
(or whatever the install file is called.)
The first time you run it, I believe, it creates the drive_c directory
under ~/.wine where future programs will be installed. When I run Remote
Admin Viewer on my FC3 box to view a Windows desktop at work, I run:
$ wine /home/richard/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Radmin/radmin.exe
This is all just stuff I figured out on my own, so I probably have gotten
something wrong somewhere. radmin.exe is the only program I've managed to
get working under Wine so far; I haven't tried running any games.
Hope that helps.
