wp 8 starts up fine on my SuSE9.0 but I really haven't tried much more
than that. I did get a crash when I was testing it prior to this reply,
but that could have been a fluke.

The Corel program I really miss since upgrading beyond SuSE 8.1 is Corel
Photopaint. My wife and daughter were quite fond of it. After
installing SuSE9.0 I loaded it up using the same instructions I
followed w/ SuSE 8.1 but Photopaint never gets past initializing
(corel's version of) wine.

Any ideas from someone who got it working would be appreciated
