Problems With WoW and Cedega

I'm having problems with getting World of Warcraft installed and running under Cedega 5.0. I've got Cedega installed and I can open the main Cedega Console and click the Install button to add an entry for WoW then make an icon and set the target exe as the WoW install executable on the cd. The problem is that when i select the installer in Cedega and hit the play button nothing happens. I did manage to get WoW installed by right clicking the executable file and selecting the option to run with wine. The main game file can also be run through the right click > wine windows emulator option, but it runs in windowed mode, doesnt show background, and won't properly install the patch after downloading. I think this problem might be related to the fact that I dont have the game installed to my transgaming c_drive location, because the partition that it is on is too small. Is it possible to reinstall the transgaming c_drive to my other hard drive partition, and will this fix the problem or is there something else I need to do?
