What works

The installer worked if I chose the minimal option.  It was necessary to run winecfg and make windows 95 the default version of windows.

What does not

I could not figure out how to install the full version because it required a second cd.  The tips from the FAQ about using wine eject and wine start 'd:\setup' did not help.  I still could not unmount the cd and insert the next one.  wine eject would give the error "Cannot open device for drive d:', whether I started setup.exe by typing 'wine start "d:\setup.exe"' or "wine /media/cd/setup.exe'.  I then tried copying the contents of the first cd to my harddrive but it then expected the next cd to be under the same path as the setup.exe file.  I tried copying the second cd into the same directory as the first, but that didn't work either.

After successfully installing using the minimal install option,  I ran links as follows:

 wine ~/.wine/drive_c/linksls/Links\ LS.EXE

 It asked if I wanted to run in MSDOS mode or Win95 mode. I chose the latter.

 I then got a dialog saying: "Links LS was suspended by another application.  Click "Resume" to return to the game".  The same dialog repeats if you press resume.
