    I remember this one! Wine should really do the trick: `apt-get install wine`
    and then `wine TIC.EXE`.

I'm not sure I can do that.  I have the install disk image, and the file names are slightly mangled, and I suppose the actual files are too.
Ineed to run SETUP at least, and I'm just hoping it will work.

Well, the infamous "setup.exe" (all different but the same name!) frequently runs in Wine--try it and see what happens.
