Well, I once had a look at it, but it was way cruel, the installation
package (at least the one I was aware of) was a rpm, that IIRC needed an
/opt, and there was lots of binary code and other stuff, so it is not
the thing of: lets put it under linux emu and let it run...

Gave it up quite frustrated, because it has its own installer that was
not so easy to fool around.
