ares on wine

I installed ares using wine and its working perfectly... but as I have a dual boot with windows XP I want the linux ares to save and resume downloads on my XP partition. This way i can use ares through both of them!!
Currently ares saves downloads on the virtual drive created by Wine.. does some one know how i could link it to my mounted fat32 partition instead?

Thanks in advance,

i haven't used ares before but did you try to specify in linux to use the windows download folder that ares uses , so that they both uses the same folder

I just tried Ares Lite. Seems to work fine. (Although I'm not sure what I started it with. Wine or Cedega lol)
