    I just installed Darwine for a bit on my MacBook to test out ies4osx and Internet Explorer 6 ran great (except for slow startup times, but hey, it worked :D). Anyway, what are the dangers to the OS X system on the same partition? Could Darwine run an executable virus that took down my whole hard drive, or would it only affect the Windows API that executed it? What about ActiveX controls? Same thing?

    Sorry for my ignorance; just curious (and slightly worried in a Darwine-noob sort of way ;) )

    I would love to get past the "Creating Wine Prefix"

    Anyone else having this issue? I have searched and searched but for some reason no one posts the fix
