There's an "AmiKit on Linux Guide" .pdf in the knowledge base on the AmiKit site. It would have been nice if they had linked to it from the Installation page. You will still need a Windows computer to run the .exe, or maybe Wine under Linux will work.

Ever hear of WINE? It will allow you to install and run nearly any Windows exe.

More like "almost none Windows exe". If it was nearly any then i have an remarkable ability to only try the very few ones it can't run.
