Change WINE settings

I'm trying to run a program in WINE that needs to access the CD it was installed from. How can I tell wine to associate the /mnt/cdrom folder with the psuedo-D:\ drive?

depending on your version, you may have to add a symbolic link to /mnt/cdrom in the .wine/dosdevices directory, or add something like the following to the config file:

[Drive D]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "CD-Rom"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
"Device" = "/dev/cdrom"
