i don't see why not especially when you edit your ~/.wine/config file and map the drive letters to your various windows mount points.

i honestly don't know how and if wine works with xp and ntfs. if that's what you got going on, i'd suggest not using an existing windows install for wine and go with using a fake c drive in your user's home directory for wine.

go here -> http://frankscorner.org for wine help. i believe he still provides you with a fake c drive for download.

also, what distro are you running? i'd guess redhat 8 or 9 since you don't have even ntfs read support.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/downloads.html

match your kernel version and arch version that you want. getting an arch of i686 should be fine.

you don't "get one"
you make one ...
and to make it a whole lot easier for you, look below in my sig and visit the frankscorner site, and then go the downloads section, and download winetools ..
run that, and let it make your fake drive for you ...
the fake drive is simply a folder which is typically put in your home folder ..

yep i have it and its installed, wine works but where is the windows folder? like if i need to copy .dll's all the program said was "~/.wine." and there is a /mnt/win folder but its empty...

also for installing programs, should in install them to the fake c or to 'z' root at like /home/me/installhere?

**Edit**
reading my book today, i found that
.filenames arnt viewable normaly... you have to ls -a to see them, so that explains why i could not find it looking around in gnome..
but what then does the ~ mean?

"~/" usually denotes your home directory. and in wine, the windows folder is in your fake c drive. i think it should be ~/c/windows but i use a different wine configuration and i'm not exactly sure on that one.
