I think we need some sort of independant confirmation that this works. That simflight forum thread has been around for a while, and while very interesting, doesn't really provide some good answers when push comes to shove. I'd love to see a newbie help file with very specific steps telling us how it's done. My linux experience has shown me that if I don't document it, chances are I can't repeat it. Hopefully someone who has succeeded with running FS2k2 under WINE can document their steps and problems, and provide assistance.Flight Simulator 200x is THE only reason I do not have Linux installed on my desktop PC. It's at work, it's on my home server, but not on the desktop. And I'd love to put it there!I implore anyone who has been successful in this venture to detail their steps and methods!-Greg

Staffan,That thread was referred to some time ago and if you look at all the posts there is no real proof that it works.There area number of questions posed to Flyboy and he has not replied to them despite there being quite a time gap between his original post and the last posting.I smell a rat so don't get your hopes up, however I hope I am wrong.Rgds
