wine available in root?

how can i make wine available in root ( wine says write.conf is writable please login as normal user) but i am testing linux for a month now on a slow pc with 4gb's of hardisk space and if i try to login as a normal user linux says there isn't enough disc space.
so i need wine in root.

how can i fix that ?

it's possible the user's home directory may have an issue. ever logged in as that user? if not, delete/recreate the account
and please don't bump your posts until they've went unanswered for about 24 hours, it's bad manners
