    I was able to download and install the latest Wine build from the Wine
    website, 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.
