Running Wine on Solaris 10

Was wondering if anybody has installed and successfully ran Wine on a server running Solaris 10 (x86 - 8/07). I just installed Solaris 10 on a Dell PowerEdge 2950 server and my boss wants me to try and install Wine on it and use the server as an Emulation server so that users can connect to it and run Microsoft Office applications such as Powerpoint/Word/Excel. I've never used any kind of Windows emulation software before so I'm not sure how all that works.

Yes, Wine works fine 8-).  However, it will only work with 32-bit kernels.

Why don't you use star office or open office?

We're trying to run Microsoft applications such as Access and Powerpoint. Does Star Office (v7) have an equivalent or is it able to open powerpoint docs and access databases?
