    Good luck I cant get Wine (windows emulator) to run on Suse. I had it working on Ubuntu 7.10 and installed Microsoft Office and Downtown Run a high graphics racing game. However Ubuntu applications kept freezing up and each time I rebooted Ubuntu changed the resolution and mixed up the icons on the Panel (Taskbar).

    I am currently using Suse 10.0 alone (no Microsoft on PC) but it is not supported any longer. So I downloaded the latest Suse 11.0 2gig and 2 days later it would not install (missing repositories).
    Sadly unless I can find a linux distribution that works I may have to return to XP.

    Could you please let me know how I can post a new message on this forum?
