You are kidding!  I have tried that several times, and though I can
get MSOffice programs to run, my Wine always gets stuck and pukes when
trying to run Quicken.  Did you do anything special?  Can you forward
config files to me?

Thanks!  It's the one app that I need to reboot the machine to use...
