Running Notepad on Linux

I always get path problem when i tried to run Notepad from my Win Nt partition.
I wonder is it wine's configuration problem or wine doesn't support Win Nt at this moment.
Because i can't find path to Winnt and path to System32 in wine's config file.

Please help.

Thanks.

you've not even configured wine for your system? it's not psychic, it doesn't know where your system is... afaik you should have a program called winesetup.tk

configure wine

I already installed wine, winesetuptk, winetools.
I have gone through the winesetup,
but i figured out that winesetup doesn't support Win NT,
it only support win 3.1, win 95, win 98.
Am i right?

i got path error, because i tried to run Notepad from NT partition.
This is because Notepad located at C:/WINNT.
But my config file only has C:/Windows.
That 's why i got path error!! Can't find the path!

Correct me if i am wrong. Or my didn't run the winesetup properly?

Thanks.

double check your configuration, I beleive the file is .config in .wine/ directory or something along these lines, make sure that wine knows about existing windows partitions on your system, otherwise it creates fake windows partitions on your linux drive.

Wine already includes notepad, just run "notepad" from the linux command line to check it out.
