I have already got those fonts installed.
Q: is there any way to install windows without actually going through
it's process of installation?
Or, does anyone know if i can run wine with windows files just copied
to the wine fake_windows dir ( I'm not in the mood for a windows install,

I suspect you CAN copy DLL's to the fake_windows/Windows/System directory because I have done that and it worked. What I am waiting for is the release of Lindows (http://www.lindows.com), since WINE just isn't cutting it. The pre-release version is due before the end of this month and will cost $99. Version 1 is expected before the end of the first quarter, 2002. It seems that several commercial products have come out of the WINE project, including a set of libraries that allows QuickTime for Windows to run on Linux.
