install foxpro 9

i m using wine 1.1.7 in my slackware 12.1
change the windows environment
paulmcnett has a good tutorial about how to install foxpro in slackware. he told to use his patch but the patch not working in wine 1.1.7 the winpos.c is located in dlls/user32/

so i m compiling wine from its source as it is. with three little step
#make install (as a root)
after done it, run winecfg to start configuration. but after appear the dialog box, close it. now copy the entire foxpro 9 cd to /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/
then create shortu for easy access.

#ln -s /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/foxpro9/foxpro.exe foxpro

next time u want to run foxpro, use this command in console
#wine foxpro
