I have a FreeNX server with domain authentication and automounting SMB shares. It still has some issues and is work in progress.
I have an old 16bit windows app that installs and runs nicely in wine, I have it installed in /home/user/.wine and it runs ok from there and I can access it as a published application using the FreeNX client.
Question is about how to properly set up wine. by default wine installs into the users homedir and c_drive is within that. I don't really want a separate insllation in each users homedirectory (btw, if I did do this, do I just put the installed .wine into /etc/skel ? ) and the application seems to require write access to wine. Am I supposed to install the 16bit app outside of the wine directory in /usr/local ?

Re: Wine question
put the .wine in /etc/skel. Symlink the files/folders in /etc/skel/.wine/ to some other location (/usr/local/wine/blah for instance) that you want to be static for everyone. You could even symlink .wine in it's entirety if you wanted.

Re: Wine question
that sounds like a good plan, I'll work out which need to be writeable for everyone and symlink the others.
