Re: [edlug] how do I open a .wab file in linux (ubuntu) ??

Thanks you two but I don't have access to Windoze,
so back to my main question can I open the .wab on my ubuntu desktop with some linux program - is there a way ??

I don't have access to windows so can I do it under linux? I just want to see the names & phone numbers nothing
fancy is required.
