/root/.wine is where you put root's config file. There should be a sample file in /usr/doc/wine-<number that was on rpm>/samples. Just run this command:"mkdir /root/.wine', copy the sample config file to the /root/.wine directory, and adjust it to your liking with the help of the man page wine.conf.

For spaces and other things, in some programs, you have to put a backslash before it. For example: /mnt/win/Program\ Files. Note that if you want to specify programs Linux-style you have to configure / as a windows drive in your config.
