As I recall, WordPerfect Office 12 (retail box) will run under Wine. The download version will not work with Wine.

Thank you Gary. I have opened WP files under OO, but I'd like my WP2000
operational enough to generate new files, and use the "Reveal Codes"
Using OO is too much like M$-Word for my liking.
I did have it mostly functioning under Xandros.
Someone contributed the idea of using a virtual machine, and perhaps
putting Corel Distribution into that would run WP2000 for me ... another
learning experience ...
but I'd just like to become an appliance operator, not bleeding-edge
