Unhappy How changing the path for wine??

[killah@localhost killah]$ cd install
[killah@localhost install]$ cd office
[killah@localhost office]$ wine install.exe
Could not stat /mnt/fd0 (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
Could not stat /cdrom (No such file or directory), ignoring drive D:
wine: cannot find 'install.exe'
[killah@localhost office]$

he goes always to my cd-rom or floppy to install EXE's

how can I change the path that wine goes to my /home/killah/install/office/install.exe

Add a drive in your ~/.wine/config file for your /. In the file you will see that A: is /mnt/fd0, D: is /cdrom. Add a drive E: or F: for /. The manual page wine.conf will help you. Or, look at what folder your C: is in the file, and put the program there.

The errors about /mnt/fd0 and /cdrom simply mean that there is neither a floppy nor a cd present and are harmless.

Are you sure ther is a readable 'install.exe' ?
Maybe there are capitals lettters.

Using closest match instead (Belgian keyboard layout) for scancode mapping.
Please define your layout in dlls/x11drv/keyboard.c and submit them
