    I downloaded this windows emulator on my linux machine using Firefox. I ran the installer and it got all the way through, now I can't find it. Where do I go to look (I am running GNOME.)

    lol, you know what WINE stands for, right?

    go to command prompt.

    type "su"
    type your admin password
    type "updatedb"
    type "locate wine"
