Ed ubuntu newbe. 
My daughter gave me her old, but nice Toshiba lap with XP trouble and bugs and lost the XP DC. didn't want to $$$ for a new CD. my son-in-law said to try ubuntu so I'm here, trying to fix it for my wife who uses Family tree maker and doesn't won't to use anything else
I'm trying to install a  ("virtual machine") I installed wine the other day and couldn't get it to load IE6 & FTM. Son-in-law he uses VMware at work so I installed it using http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-vmware-server-2-on-an-ubuntu-8.04-desktop  Sudo commands. but I can't open it and some how it is in the applications dropdown list on wine's list and not in the app's list. I went to synaptic package manager and found it. boxes are not checked.
? #1 what do I need to do to take it off of the wines list and add it to the app's list. and 
? #2 will checking the boxes  make it open or do I need to do something else also.
Thanks Ed
