Do you have a ~/.wine directory? What are its permissions? Check the WineTools at frankscorner.org to quickly make a virtual windows drive in .wine.

try it from regular user. i don't know why this would help, but it might be that wine doesn't create a .wine directory in /root/ by default whereas it does in your ~ directory the first time you run it. Just a thought.

P.S. Why would you want to run windows apps as root? It seems like an invitation to trouble.

it doesn't matter if it makes it or not.....you have to manually create your fake windows directory....so just by double clicking a wine rpm and then typing wine program.exe willl not work...you have to at least config it to some extent
also there is a common error about some wineserver thing that i am noticing that is frequently occuring with redhat 9 users, and all i can suggest is browse this fourm as i know people have posted the way they fixed/got around this issue..

Doesn't redhat use a weird version of wine that runs as a service and intercepts clicks on .exe files and stuff? Also does winesetuptk work?

goto http://www.slinux.net/
Register as a user
Download Wine...3.1.tar
Go into your terminal
Log in as root
#mv Wine...3.1.tar ../../../../../
#cd /
#tar -zxvf Wine...3.1.tar

Wabam! Now when you want to use a game or any other windows application, all you have to do is type winex3 in terminal b4 the program name...
Example
$winex3 /home/bobby/games/starcraft.exe

Have fun
