If it's just to run a couple of apps Wine would be the best option - no
need to install a new windows base and no need for a windows license
either. Only down side is that compatibility is a problem - and you
would have to fiddle a bit to get it working.
Which reminds me, I'm trying to install a fresh verison of wine but I
[root@h... bob]# rpm -Uvh wine-20020710.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
OpenGL is needed by wine-20020710-1
libasound.so.1 is needed by wine-20020710-1
libcups.so.2 is needed by wine-20020710-1
alsa-lib is needed by wine-20020710-1
cups-lib is needed by wine-20020710-1
Now, those look pretty straightforward to find, except for OpenGL. Any
idea where I can get this? Am I going down the wrong track? Oh dear me

Give Wine a go. Or Crossover Office (based on Wine). But you best bet
is probably VMWare. I use VMWare a lot on my box to run some 'required'
Windows apps. VMWare is very snappy on my Athlon 1Ghz with 512MB of
RAM. VMWare isn't cheap but it's cheaper than buying a whole other PC.
And it provides other neat features that you can't do with 2 PC's, like
copy and paste from X to the Virtual Machine.

Anyone know if it is possible to get MYOB running under any of the
programs (eg Wine, Plex86, etc) that let you run windows code in Linux?
