  1. Hi

    Great instruction and help, thanks

    I hit a glitch on the very last line


    I get the error message :-

    Wine Installer v1.0

    You are running wineinstall as root, this is not advisable. Please rerun as a user.

    I tried as user, but this cant find the ./tools directory.

    Any idea ?
