I'm running potato, and I'm having problems installing the
evaluation version.  First, the quickdownload.sh downloaded an
rpm package and not a deb.  But since I'm not using slink (and I
assume the deb would be for Corel), I simply ran alien on the rpm
package to get a deb out of it.

But running the install script fails:

# sh install-win4lin.sh 
failed dependencies:
        /bin/sh   is needed by Win4Lin-4.9.2k.eval-1
The Win4Lin package install failed.

Of course, I have /bin/sh (I even removed the soft link and
copied over a real binary to it).  I can't find where it's
testing this in the script so far.

Any ideas?

Did you get it to work under slink or potato?
