running programs in wine


i just recently installed wine, but i don't know if i have it installed properly. I read alot the Wine HQ manuels, but still was unable to resolve my issues. They talk about having a config file in my ./wine directory and i don't have one, do i need a config file???? If some were can i get one.

when you run wine it automatically creats a config

just by typing wine in a terminal

then if you want to run the program type

wine program.exe
