follow-up

Just thought I'd post a follow-up. I ended up having to re-install windows for now in order to run some of my Windows based applications. ROS just isn't ready for the apps yet. And right now SuSe just doesn't support my Scanner or my Bible software. I don't use the scanner often but, I use the Bible...

Re: ROS is an OS Wine is fine...

I've got Bochs installed. But for the life of me I have no idea how to configure or run it. I using SuSE 9.3 I go into a shell and type "Bochs" but I'm not sure what to do from there. VMWare Player is free and very fast (compared to bochs or qemu) to run a nondemanding biblestuddy software it sould...

Why not just reinstall Windows? Drop bochs. It's far too slow. If you want an open source virtual machine, use qemu. Or better still, get Xen. That's my problem. I have no Idea how to reinstall windows without wiping out my SuSE 9.3 install. I mean, I would hate to mess up a perfectly good operatin...

Re: ROS is an OS Wine is fine...

It's PC Study Bible and MS Streets and Trips. I spent $500 for PC Study Bible and I just can't get it to install with Wine or Codeweaver. There is nothing else on the market like it. And for some reason my Windows partition no longer boots. It says, "invalid system disc". But, I'm able to access it...

Newbie question regarding install in Suse

Excuse my ignorance, but, I'm currently running SuSE 9.3 and I have a few windows apps that just will not run under Wine. I have no idea how to install ReactOS or if this is the direction I need to pursue. I have found open source replacement apps for most of my Windozes programs but there is one th...
