i install rosseta stone on the windows partition and also on ubunutu with wine.

but i would like to use the language packages installed on windows on ubuntu as well.

is there a way to set a route to the language package installed on windows so ubuntu will use the same file, that way i just intsall it only one time.

Ubuntu 10.04 shows me my window drive under the Places menu as a Filesystem with x Gb of space. Once I click on it Ubuntu auto mounts it. I can then see it under /media. At this point you could make a symbolic link to it.

ln -s /your/file /your/link

This is all a hack. I know you can modify your /etc/fstab file to have it mount all the time.

That would be a start. Don't know if it is a good idea. :)
