I have just installed Xandros and used apt-get to install wine, but I have two questions:

1: I can run exes using the wine command, but when i try to use toe control center to automatically run the wine command when i double click an exe, it doesn't work. Anyone know what I should do?

2: I want to install some programs with 2 disks, but when it asks for disk 2, i cannot eject the cd with either the file manager or the eject command, what can I do?

Thanks in advance for your help

> double click an exe
echo "wine /path-to-file.exe" >> script.sh
where /patch-to-file.exe is the full path to the exe file
Then double click on script.sh

> I want to install some programs with 2 disks, but when it asks for disk 2,
That's the bug with that install program, contact the program first to ask them shouldn't lock the CDROM when it ask for the disk 2.
Otherwise, you need a long pin to plug in the hole in front of CDROM to force ejection of CD.
