Wine drive config prob & half-life


I am trying to setup Half-life to run on fedora core 1 under wine. I installed wine from source, and checked the config files for anything I thought suspicious, then I tryed to run setup.exe on the HL cd. All the wine examples, like notepad.exe and winmine.exe worked fine, but when I ran the Half-life setup, the installer loaded to 99% and in the terminal, Wine threw this:
Code:
[root@localhost cdrom]# wine SETUP.EXE
err:wave:OSS_WaveOutInit /dev/mixer1: No such device
err:virtual:map_image Standard load address for a Win32 program (0x00400000) not available - security-patched kernel ?
wine: could not load L"E:\\_ISTMP2.DIR\\00001a61._MP" as Win32 binary
The last line I believe is the little devil, because at 99% in the initialization of the installer, thats when that last line is printed. I checked the config files about drive E, and I believe it is my cd burner, altought I think it was setup before as being a temp directory...Any suggestions? Thanks alot!

Okay, I just changed the drive e to my home directory, and made it a hd type, but after installing Half-life, I can't find it anywhere! Shouldn't it be in my c folder in my home? Or did it mess up because I did half-life setup as root?

EDIT: I tried it as non-root, but now, instead of getting e:\\ the error, I get this error:
Code:
wine: could not load L"C:\\_ISTMP2.DIR\\00000bb3._MP" as Win32 binary
It seems to be the same, or similar to the above one, but this is when I run SETUP.EXE on the half-life cd. Drive C is configured the same as drive E....Thanks....

Hey, thanks for the reply, but I checked the site and followed some links and im still lost. I need help on drive mappings, like in the config file, and getting the hl setup and everything to not throw that C:\ error. Thanks

Did you setup wine with windows or without (recommended)? Your [Drive C] path="" should point to the directory where windows is. If it's a fake windows setup then probably path="$HOME/.wine/fake-windows", if its a real windows then path="/windows/mount/point".

When installing Half-Life you should be in the CDRom mount directory, e.g.
cd /mnt/cdrom
wine Setup.exe

Yea, Its a non-windows setup, and my c drive is /home/max/c. I have it setup for that in the config file, but still It gets the above error. Heres the c part in the config:
Code:
[Drive C]
"Path" = "/home/max/c"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "MS-DOS"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
Thanks.

Okay, It works now, wierd though, I had the same config but it worked this time....
Anyways, now I get an error about needing 16bit color. Half life will start and everything, but it doesnt get to the main menu, before all that it says I need to change my settings to 16 bit color. I have it setup as that on my desktop, but do I need to change something in the wine config? Thanks.

I have a voodoo 3 if that would mean anything...

You can fix that by setting DefaultColorDepth in the /etc/X11/XF86Config file.

Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier "screen1"
    Device "Savage4"
    Monitor "KDS"
    DefaultColorDepth 16
...
EndSection

Sorry I'm not real good with exceptions in WINE. Have you looked around at lhl.linuxgames.com ? There is a HOWTO run Half-Life using WINE there
