Wine programs from windows?

this may be a foolish noob question, but is it possible to run some of my windows programs in linux, using wine, from the install I allready have on my windws partition?

It would save a good bit a disk space if I only had to keep one install, just wonderng if this is possible. Thanks in advance!

Good luck!
