Yeah, I need to get Money working ASAP too. Otherwise, accounting will
pile up and it will be a nightmare. If my current Crossover trial fails,
I will try the method described above.

On an unrelated topic, since I downloaded IE6 now like 20 times (for
each install) I noticed that the download speed under Ubuntu is about
twice as fast as Windows (same machine, same network, same ISP, etc).
Has anyone else noticed this before?
