what do you mean?

run Delphi application under linux? it is possible if you have Kylix3/Delphi7 - then you can develop native linux app

or you can try to run Delphi IDE or Delphi application via Wine (win emulation)

better go along with WinE, this emulator good enough for running exe in linux, as long as you avoid using registry. Take note that several WinAPI won't work or having small differences with using windows.

building apps in lazarus in another hands, also a nice solution (since we all know that kylix were ... ). but lazarus has a smaller amount of visual component library, you will have to write or find most of the component your self.

so, if you using windows i recomends use winE, if you don't, fetch your lazarus today !
