Hello All, I have just begun my transition from windows to Linux, using Linux Mint 11. To that end I purchased a box with said OS completely installed, but with respect thereto, I have immediately encountered a problem: I have an Alltell (Verizon) modem which I have always used with windows, but the installation program for that modem is an EXE file. Come to find out, Linux Mint apparently does not know how to handle an EXE file ( and I certainly do not) for the purpose of installing an application. Since I have no internet connection, absent a modem, I cannot go searching for suitable products from my new box (I am currently using a friends laptop to post this). Thus, is there a way to execute an EXE installation program from within Linux Mint directly? Through a quick search on this borrowed puter I have discovered that Wine works as an emulator on Suese (SP?), but does it also work for Linux Mint? Alternatively, is there a modem and installation program that I can buy that will effectively work in Linux Mint? I appreciate any and all suggestions on this issue.
