WINE problem running exe. files..

hey peeps,
I have a little problem i downloaded and installed WINE on FC2.
First I couldn't run any problem so i searched the forums a bit and
i found a solution
But now i stumped on another problem.... I would love to run a exe. file
but wine says it's not there.... here a example:

[kishan@kish kishan]$ wine c:\\magic\\magic1.exe
file_set_error: No such device or address
wine: cannot find 'c:\magic\magic.exe'
doesn't run magic.exe

[kishan@kish kishan]$ wine c:\\windows\\regedit.exe
file_set_error: No such device or address
starts regedit.....

What am i doing wrong? cause the files really are in my wine-c dir ....

please help ^^

Try running 'regedit' and/or 'notepad'. If those don't work, then there's something wrong with your wine config. Also, if these work, try File->Open in notepad to see if your virtual drives are properly configured.

Maybe if already done all that though, if so, I can't help :-(.
