I have wine installed(yes it is wow's sfs although i think it may need video acceleration) I installed 7-zip with wine then made a script that starts it in usr/bin so now when i want 7-zip i just run 7zip from the command line or click on the script

you can see it in the video here(I start 7zip at 1:50 min): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u30ciyNkPAk

you can set programs to start when you click on them by setting the runaction to wine "$@"

or you can go to the directory of the program and type wine ./nameofprogram

just installed bhunter and homeworld:cateclysm

both are from around 1999-2001 and use directx 6 or 7 i think
bhunter runs only in software mode
cateclysem runs in anymode as long as you leave it at the default res resizing crashes it

i had to setup the cd drive properly in wincfg to /mnt/hdc
then the game cd must be mounted

then i had to run the games from the command line like so:

wine ./cateclysm.exe

note wine /root/.wine/whatever/cateclysm

will not work as you must run the game from the commandline with the cateclysm directory as your working directory

if you type "ls" with out quotes at the commandline and see the cateclysm files your working derectory is correct

to change your working directory just type cd /root/.wine/the_rest_of_the_path

if you don't run it that way the game seems not to be able to acess it's files

Wine is tricky on any flavour of Linux. Its definitely a work-in-progress. It works much better with some apps than others, so do check here: http://appdb.winehq.org/
Lots of tips & tweaks which are often necessary to get any given app working in Wine. Do not attempt to use windoze apps in a windoze install, the appies must be seperately installed in the faux C:\ drive that Wine creates.
Examples: my old Rail Baron Player runs well in Wine, but my Stars! game won't run at all unless there is a full desktop environment (e.g. XFCE) available, it finds window managers alone inadequate!
Best to remember Samuel Johnson's aphorism on another subject:
"...[It] is like a dog's walking on his hinder legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."
