[K12OSN] K12LTSP 5EL and Wine

Ok, I thought I had figured this out but apparently not. The only thing that seems to make a difference is renaming the fonts folder in wine. It then seems to go out and find the system fonts from CentOS, but not all of them. I'm wondering if copying all the TFF files into the .wine fonts folder would fix it? I'll try it when I get home, that's where I've been messing with it for now. I don't want to mess with my server too much before school. Is there a way I can remove and then reinstall wine but showing what may have went wrong? Debug it is what I mean. So I can get a better idea of what might be causing this, I don't think recompiling it made a difference, and neither did installing all the other font packages. Thanks.

By the way, I installed wine from the rpmforge repository.
