Wine and windows help

How can i be sure which windows install wine is trying to use. I have 2 , windows 2000 and windows 98se. Windows 2000 is my main hard drive so i think its trying to use windows 2000 and thats why wine isnt working. I had wine working fine when 98se was my primary drive.

are you referring to the variable version in the /home/USER/.wine/config file or do you have actual partitions set up with them windows versions installed?
