As far as I'm aware, Linux and Windws cannot run the same software, "out of the box". And VB6 is very definitely Windows-only.

However, I do seem to recall that there is software you can use on Linux to allow you to run Windows software - possibly in a simulated Windows session. Um... the name "Lindows" is floating around at the back of my head.

You might want to try asking in the Windows and/or Linux forums.
