    WINE/ E/OS LX help

    Can anyone tell me where can I find info on how to use WINE/E/OS LX? I want to be able to run my windows programs using Knoppix from CD Rom First, is it possible to run windows program using Knoppix from CD Rom? When I try to open a windows program with WINE, I get the message that WINE is trying to open the program but nothing happens. I tried to open Internet Explorer which I have heard works with WINE. Also has anyone tried the other program E/OS LX? The Web site is http://meos.sourceforge.net/index2.htm. Please point in in the right direction on how to get windows programs running under Knoppix. Thanks.

    WINE's ability to run windows programs is by no means perfect. You are not going to get anything close to 100% compatibility. Nevertheless, I run a number of windows apps using wine. I'd highly advise you to look at Frank's Corner. There are a lot of helpful tutorials and tips there.
