wine

I'm at http://www.winehq.com

It says before installing you must uninstall any previous installs.

does gentoox home come with a earlier version ?

when i download and install, which distro do i choose ?

I do not see gentoo listed, is it based off FreeBSD binary .tgz for FreeBSD 4.8, 4.9, 5.0, 5.1 ?

did you flash one of your banks on your chip (if you have any spare ones) with cromwell ?

I would try booting from the cromwell bios that comes with gentoox.

yes, I guess you can only do a native install with a f: partition, and stock drives do not have one....

I imagine Shallax will address both of these some day.
