Because of this I need wine to run the disk, but I can't use apt-get to install wine due to lack of internet connection. I've looked on the Wine website and it doesn't say specifically which version i need for linux mint.

Sundayrefugee has suggested a version of wine, so should be sorted.

Stickman wrote:Well I don't know if my wireless is supported. It's being recognized by Mint as being there, and its seeing networks etc - it just can't connect to my router. Maybe the router is at fault. It says its only compatible with WIndows "and other OS's running a TCP/IP network". Huh???

2) Wireless card is Netgear WG311 v2. It says 54 mbps, 802.11g on the box if that's helpful.
3) The computer is a desktop homebuild (I knocked it together out of assorted bits). AMD Athlon XP2600+ (1.92ghz), 1.25 GB RAM, Radeon 9200 128MB graphics.
