Modern Day WINE drive specs


I'm trying to set up the latest and greatest in WineHQ WINe on my Suse 10 system, and while it is working, I'm wanting to know how I can specify what WINe should tell my programs is my D:\ drive or E:\ drive. My program (Real Flight G3, in this case) is trying to run, but the installer is not finding the installation CD, from which it was launched. It shows the graphics, but it can't find the CD. Once upon a time, WINe used /etc/wine.conf for this, but I have found no mention of it in the new WINe man files. I have not stumbled upon the README yet either. What does WINe use to do this?

It's now usually done through a graphical configuration tool. Just run 'winecfg' in a terminal and you can set up your drives however you wish. The actual 'drives' themselves are symlinks buried in your ~/.wine/dosdevices directory, and the config is stored in the 'registry', which is really a set of text files kept in the same location.
