    Nstoker, what version of Turbocad are you using with wine?

    I've never been able to get any later version going with wine than the old 2D version 4 Learning Edition.

    I just tried the EasyVMX method and it's very nice.
    It creates the .vmdk file, too, so you don't have to download one.
