Subject: For Linux Users-- I'm running "Tom's Live Chess Viewer" under Linux

For any fellow Linux users,

Just thought I'd pass this on in case anyone else is interested.  I just
installed Tom McBurney's online chess viewer under Linux using CrossOver
Office 4.2.  I initially tried vanilla wine, but even after copying over
the "MSVBVM60.DLL" library (which was missing from my default wine setup)
it still didn't function correctly.  For reference, my setup:

SUSE 9.3 Pro
CrossOver Office 4.2 Pro (although the standard ver. should work fine)
Tom's Live Chess Viewer ver. 2.01

So far everything seems to work.  It's a bit flaky occasionally, but
definitely usable.  I've been using it to watch Olivier's Chesswar off
and on this afternoon and it's worked OK.
