Wine Registry Key Error

Hi all, im new i used redhat for a little while then switched to gentoo. using kernel 2.6.10 my problem is that when i try to open .exe files in wine i get this error:

wine /home/jason/downloads/BroodWar.exe
Please use the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts\LogPixels
to set the screen resolution and remove the "Resolution" entry in the config file

Now i understand what its telling me but i have no idea as to where to go to get to there. can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks alot! if you need more info plz say so i didnt know how much you needed.

in ~/.wine
there is a file called "config"
edit it
i assume this is saying there is an entry under the [x11drv] section called
that should be commented out with a ";" in front of it
