I am new to Ubuntu (have 10.04 only installed, no dual system), and I wish to add the XP version of spider Solitaire to Wine. I have an old XP installation CD.

What is the procedure for extracting the spider.exe file from the CD?

It seems to me it is a better fit for windows related question, because the main task is extracting spider.exe from XP CD – Anwar Shah Sep 3 '12 at 14:14

It's not necessary to use the windows version:

It's in default gnome-games installation! Try AisleRiot Solitaire and change game /ctrl+o/ to spider I like it more then pySol
