I think this is before wine changed the config procedure. You need to run the wine command by itself to create a .wine directory in your home dir. Then if it doesn't give you a file called config copy the one from /usr/doc/wine-20050524/samples. You need to edit that file to map directories in your filesystem to virtual windows drives. Wine can only install and run software from those locations.
