wine installation problems

Hi, im attempting to install wine but ive run into problems. I chose to do the simplest way of installing, aka using the installwine bin in the tools directory. Everything goes fine until the very end, where it attempts to build the wine registry entries. Here is the error I recieve:

Searching for an existing Windows installation..../tools/wineinstall: line 453:
/tmp/wineinstall.conf: Permission denied
rm: cannot remove `/tmp/wineinstall.conf': Operation not permitted
not found. (no matching /etc/fstab mount entry found)

Windows was not found on your system, so I assume you want
a Wine-only installation. Am I correct?
(yes/no) yes

Configuring Wine without Windows.
Some fake Windows directories must be created, to hold any .ini files, DLLs,
start menu entries, and other things your applications may need to install.
Where would you like your fake C drive to be placed?
(default is /home/god/c)
Configuring Wine for a no-windows install in /home/god/c...
./tools/wineinstall: line 543: /tmp/wineinstall.conf: Permission denied

Created /home/god/.wine/config using default Wine configuration.
You probably want to review the file, though.

Compiling regedit...
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.

Preparing to install default Wine registry entries...
Installing default Wine registry entries...

Could not stat /home/god/.transgaming/c_drive (No such file or directory), ignoring drive C:
Invalid path L"c:\\windows" for L"windows" directory: does not exist.
Perhaps you have not properly edited or created your Wine configuration file,
which is (supposed to be) '/home/god/.wine/config'.
Registry install failed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thnx.

I installed wine from RPMs and when I ran it I used to get something like that. So I had to type "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5" to solve the problem.....

If you are having problems with the config file, get codeweavers package and after installing it run winesetup. A window will pop and it will guide you to configure it
