wine - install trouble, file permissions....HELP!!!

man i keep getting so close....i got rid of all my troubles and got it to run problem...

so i thought, hey i'll install one of my kids games....

i type in:
[sherlock@localhost sherlock]$ wine /mnt/cdrom/Game/Setup.exe

looking good, it loads the installer......wait for it wait for it....

crap out...

"Setup has detected that uninstallShield is in use. Please close uinstallShield and restart setup. Error 432"

back at the terminal it says:
fixme:file:SetFileAttributesW Couldn't set file attributes for existing file "/mnt/windows/WINDOWS/IsUninst.exe".
Check permissions or set VFAT "quiet" mount flag
fixme:file:SetFileAttributesW Couldn't set file attributes for existing file "/mnt/windows/WINDOWS/IsUninst.exe".
Check permissions or set VFAT "quiet" mount flag

okay so i go an check IsUninst.exe and find that it indeed has some permissions issues, namely i can't change them not even as root, they are set at read only on everyone...

so i tried the quiet thing on my fstab...
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=000,quiet,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0

but i still get that problem....

also i check in the in the windows folder and the games installed there, but i can't navigate the directory, when i do it does this:
[sherlock@localhost window]$ cd Blue's Reading Time Activities/

and i have to break out of it with control c

so did i add that "quiet" thing correctly? how do i fix the permissions issue? how do i get a stupid game to work????
