Question need wine config file

I'm new to linux and am running mandrake 9.1. I downloaded wine-20030618-mdk9.1.i586.rpm and wine-20020804-3mdk.src.rpm. I installed both of them without problems.
When I try to use wine to run a program (notepad.exe) it says:

wineserver: /home/drew/.wine/config is not a valid registry file
wine client error:0: recvmsg: Connection reset by peer

Then I noticed that the file /home/drew/.wine/config was empty.
Could someone post thier config file so I can possibly make mine? Thanks.
