wine problem

I am running mandrake 10.0 community eddition. i used urpmi to install wine.
now when i try to run any program, lets say just to test

wine notepad.exe
Could not stat /mnt/floppy (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0009), starting debugger...
err:seh:start_debugger Couldn't start debugger ("winedbg --debugmsg -all 8 28") (2)
Read the Wine Developers Guide on how to set up winedbg or another debugger

This is the message i get. I looked at the documentatoin and it said that i should run
before using wine.

i tried to run winesetupwines

[root@localhost windows]# winesetup
bash: winesetup: command not found

What is the problem here??? i thought may be i did not install things properly, so tried to reinstall but it says that every thing is installed already....

what am i doing wrong here. or have i missed some other important step..???

Remove the Wine that comes with Mandrake, install it from the source, delete your ~/.wine directory and try again.

Better yet, load wine 2004-10-19 rpm and configure it using winetools.
