I've downloaded WINE as well (not sure if that's needed) but basically I have a program (civilization 2) on my C:/ drive that I want to play but I have a 64-bit with Windows 7 so it won't work.

Do I 'mount' it or something?? Sorry I'm a complete noob when it comes to Linux.

Also I don't have a disc for the program. Twisted Evil

Yes, you need to install Wine if you want to run a windows program in Linux. Unless it is really a pure .NET program, which you could run with Mono.

Mount your "C: drive" (usually this is already mounted as your save file is typically saved here), navigate to the location where it is installed (e.g. /mnt/home/Program Files (x86/....), open a terminal, and try running `wine *.exe`.
But most large programs won't work like that - you need to run their installers with wine.

Really? Have you tried running it in compatibility mode?
