When you want to run an exe - eg notepad:
wine notepad.exe

or:
wine setup.exe

There is a config file in your home directory that lets you change your virtual "c:" etc but I would leave it unless you have specific problems/requirements.

The wine binary on linux should be in your path so you and run it anywhere. You will need to be in hte directory where the exe is or use the full path:
wine /mnt/cdrom/program.exe

A common misconception is that people think that you have to have Windows to run Wine. You do NOT need Windows to run Wine and can install programs/games onto your linux hard drive using Wine.

if you installed wine correctly, it would not matter what directory you are in. If you just type 'wine' in your console, you should get some options and what not. So just go to the directory of the program and type 'wine notepad.exe' and it will work, assuming you set wine up correctly.

http://www.winehq.org sort of explains what it does. WINE was setup to use applications that are used in Windows to run on or in Linux. Its possible to maybe use it to get devices working, but its not common.

Regards.
