FYI for anyone interested about FC10, want to thank everyone who posted to this board as you helped guide me in the right direction.

Initial install on FC10 would freeze as many have experienced in other posts and *nix flavors. In wine settings I chose graphics tab and removed check marks from

Allow windows manager to decorate the window
Allow windows manager to control windows

Configured it to emulate a virtual desktop I'm using 800X600 it's a small laptop, but since doing this. Hell Yeah!!!! No more freezing!!! Image link not allowed for unregistered users

I'll give it a roll for a couple of days see if it continues to work as expected. If so I'll pay Image link not allowed for unregistered users I like the product thinks it's worth every penny instead of using PAN, which I like but newsbin is 3fold better.

I followed the rest of your post but I don't understand the last part. How do you configure a virtual desktop?

Thanks,

if you go to the terminal and type "winecfg" there is a tab that say's graphics. you will find the option in there.

i've had success with unchecking the windows manage graphic box also in the past. although doesn't look to pretty :(

Just boot the PC off the Fedora DVD and then select the hard drive you want as the target for the install.
