Newby - Installing and configuring Wine

Hey Guys

I have the Wine RPM from the Wine website, I ran it, it went fine.
But when i try and run an application (simple things like notepad)
I get this message

"Warning: no valid DOS drive found, check your configuration file.
Warning: could not find wine config [Drive x] entry for current w
Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not ex
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configu
which is (supposed to be) '/home/sergeantroach/.wine/config'."

Can someone please tell me what I've done wrong and how to fix it or tell me how to do it all over again properly.

In english if possible please guys, I'm only a newby.

well you have to set up a fake windows drive...if you don't want to do it manually (which is told to you on wines website) then go download the program called winetools to do it for you...then try running a window app....
