Plz help with wine?


so far... im running mandrake rc2
ive installed wine with rpm
haven winetools installed

im getting error messages when i try to run an exe

Quote:
[justin@localhost justin]$ wine notepad Could not stat /home/justin/.wine/${HOME}/.wine/c (No such file or directory), ignoring drive C: Could not stat /home/justin/.wine/${HOME} (No such file or directory), ignoring drive F: Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not exist. Perhaps you have not properly edited your Wine configuration file (/home/justin/.wine/config) [justin@localhost justin]$
im of course a total newb.. ive searched for some help but am still not clear on what i should do here. thx for the help

You will need to edit /home/justin/.wine/config
Look for the Drive C entry, it should look like this
Code:
[Drive C]
"Path" = "${HOME}/.wine/c"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "MS-DOS"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
