    Hi,

    I have the latest version of Lycoris, and I want to be able to run soem Windows Programs.. well I dont really know how to run wine at all.. Lycorice installs it for me, and then when I try to install something nothing happens.. right now I am a bit lazy/busy (more lazy :p) to read up about it.. so some help for a first time Linux user would be appreciated... :)
