Is there a rough formula for wave height for a given wind speed?

There are so may varibles like the size and depth of the water, direction of the wind etc but here are a few links if you want to get into it:

Aerodynamic Roughness and Displacement Height Prediction for Waves

So if you ever figure out an easy way, let all us dummies know. :)hand
Thanks... but that makes my head hurt!
