I probably have to read further back on the list
but can't find any reference

I am running Mandrake
I get all sorts of errors from gdiplus.dll missing
to cannot find '/usr/lib/winelib.exe.so'

I get also:

Warning: the specified Windows directory L"c:\\windows" is not accessible.
Warning: the specified System directory L"c:\\windows\\system" is not
Warning: could not find DOS drive for current working directory

when running as root i get the following:

err:font:ReadFontDir Can't open directory "/usr/share/fonts/ttf/western"
 ---> System.DllNotFoundException: gdiplus.dll

Where can I get gdiplus.dll from? Is that part of .NET 1.1 ?
I tried installing it via wine Internet Explorer Windows Update
and of course it bummed out

Does anyone know of a site with lil tips and tricks to make at least
such a simple example work?

Looks like its much more work than installing the mandrake rpms
which I really thought would take care of everything (including
pointing to the correct libraries)

any hints I would be grateful
