At the top of your ~/.wine/config file there should be a list of windows drive letters and their linux mount points. In your drive C: path you'll probably want to have "/mnt/c" or wherever it is you mount your dos C: drive.

As a rule of thumb, after installing wine always run /wine2003xxxx/tools/winecheck. It will spit out some errors if it's not happy. You will most likely have some permissions to fix for your /dev/dsp and /dev/whateverelse and maybe your mount points, since you'll not be running wine as root.

If it complains about winedefault.reg, go get it from your wine2003xxxx/ dir. and copy it to your c: dir. and run "regedit winedefault.reg". You shouldnt have to fetch .dll's since you're running wine with an actual windows installation.

btw, wine doesnt like windows xp.

Don't let wine use your existing windows install, that does't work very well.

Force it to use a fake windows drive.
