Hi Bill. I sort of take back what I said about wine. SfArk works under wine on 
FC2, and so does the sfpack program, although that won't start from the wine 
menu, but anyway it works. So, sort of a thumbs up for wine for these two 
fairly basic programs. I suppose it's moving forwards, rather than backwards.
