    Currently i using Manrake v9.1 and i think of install it on my Redhat v9 on another system.Does it make a difference between each distro?

    Ther is no diference installing wine on Redhat and Mandrake

    The first par is oK

    gunzip wine-20030408.tar.gz

    tar -xvf wine-20030408.tar

    make

    make install

    Now, if you succesfuly end the prior steps, you have to configure some things like fake_windir and some others. So i recomend you install WineSetUpTk. wich is a GUI Setup for wine, so it will make the configuration easy.

    Here is the link to download.

    make

    make install
    You need a ./configure --prefix=/usr in there before make.

    I just installed giFT and then entered winex in the search box..

    then selected the .tgz file..

    then I typed ( in the /root/.giFT/complete folder )

    installpkg winex3_3.0-1.i386.tgz

    then I pressed enter and inserted a windows game of my liking..
    mounted the CD and typed: winex3 /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe
