I would like to know what programs you are trying to install. Or what you are having problems from. We never get a lot of information from a one sentence question so the more information that you can give us the better.

a lot of programs don't work in wine there is a list of compatible programs here:wine compatible programs keep in mind that some of these will need some messing around with the program that you want installed.

Good Luck!

Glade to see people who use linux it is the greatest open source os in the world!
