Can you post your ~/.wine/wine.conf file? What about the devices refered to in wine.conf, do you have access rights to them?

Uninstall wine. Then do:
Code:
rm -rf ~/.wine
Install the latest version of wine (but do not attempt to set it up). Download and install WineSetupTK. Download and install XWine (not to be confused with WineX). Run XWine, go to configuration, click WineSetupTK, let it use all the defaults. Voila, perfectly fine Wine installation.

rpm -e wine

Wine: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/w...ar.gz?download
Installation:
Extract the Wine-20040408.tar.gz
Get into the directory Wine was extracted to
Type the following in a terminal
Code:
./configure; make (hit enter.. let it work)
su -c make install (hit enter.. let it work)
WineSetupTK: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/w...r.bz2?download
Installation:
Extract the winesetuptk-0-73.tar.bz2
Get into the directory winesetuptk was extracted to
Type the following in a terminal
Code:
./configure; make (hit enter.. let it work)
su -c make install (hit enter.. let it work)
Close the terminal.

Click the menu, go to More Applications -> Emulators -> Wine -> Wine Setup

Let it use the defaults. Forget about XWine its for Mandrake. Voila you have it working now!

Also I don't know whether its a case of you not knowing how to use wine or not but from your question it seems like the cdrom is not mounted.

Try mounting the cdrom.

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom # if you have /mnt/cdrom

once you can jump into the directory /mnt/cdrom type the following:

wine setup.exe

If that works then its not actually wine. Seeing that I don't know how experienced you are I'm just stating the obvious.
