problems running wine

installed wine and $wine -v gives me good response ..

i tried configuring my config file but seems that there is a prblem... i tried running sol.exe and i get this error:

[murshed@localhost winnt]$ wine .sol.exe
Could not stat /mnt/fd0 (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
L"Drive D": unknown filesystem type L"iso9660", defaulting to 'win95'.
Could not stat /mnt/c/tmp (No such file or directory), ignoring drive E:
Invalid path L"e:\\" for L"temp" directory: does not exist
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file.
This is (supposed to be) '/home/murshed/.wine/config'
[murshed@localhost winnt]$

this is a copy of the first lines of my config file:

[Drive A]
"Path" = "/mnt/fd0"
"Type" = "floppy"
"Label" = "Floppy"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"
"Serial" = "87654321"
"Device" = "/dev/fd0"

[Drive C]
"Path" = "/mnt/c"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "MS-DOS"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"

[Drive D]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "CD-Rom"
"Filesystem" = "iso9660"
; make sure that device is correct and has proper permissions !
"Device" = "/dev/cdrom"

[Drive E]
"Path" = "/mnt/c/tmp"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "Tmp Drive"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"

[Drive F]
"Path" = "${HOME}"
"Type" = "network"
"Label" = "Home"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"

"Windows" = "c:\\winnt"
"System" = "c:\\winnt\\system"
"Temp" = "e:\\"
"Path" = "c:\\winnt;c:\\winnt\\system;e:\\;e:\\test;f:\\"
"Profile" = "c:\\winnt\\Profiles\\Administrator"
"GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv"
;"ShowDirSymlinks" = "1"
;"ShowDotFiles" = "1"
"ShellLinker" = "wineshelllink"

# <wineconf>

; Windows version to imitate (win95,win98,winme,nt351,nt40,win2k,winxp,win20,win30,win31)
;"Windows" = "win98"
; DOS version to imitate
;"DOS" = "6.22"

; Be careful here, wrong DllOverrides settings have the potential
; to pretty much kill your setup.
; some dlls you may want to change
"oleaut32" = "builtin, native"
"ole32" = "builtin, native"
"commdlg" = "builtin, native"
"comdlg32" = "builtin, native"

thats it .. and am running win2000 on the hda1 ..fat32 is the file system

this is telling you that your path to your floppy drive is incorrect based on the other stuff in your config file you might need to change /mnt/fd0 to /mnt/floppy (check your /mnt/directory to find the entry that is your floppy drive and change it to that) your drvie D is labeled as having an odd filesystem try changing the filesystem to "Win95" or "vfat" then you need to find a temp file for wine to use (thats what the E drive is) when you find one in your windows directory tree change it to that or im pretty sure you can just make one
