WINE why so difficult???

I`ve done evrything right!!! But its still not working, why so difficult??

--------------------- checking system devices used by Wine ---------------------
015. Checking sound device /dev/dsp... OK.
016. Checking audio mixer device /dev/mixer... OK.
017. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... OK.

----------------------- checking registry configuration ------------------------
018. Checking availability of winedefault.reg entries... OK.
019. Checking availability of windows registry entries... NOTICE (entry "Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: A Windows registry does not seem to have been added to Wine as this typical Windows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. A complete original Windows registry entry set will *not* be available with a no-windows install. Usually this will present no problem in running applications although this can affect newer programs. Feel free to ignore this message in case you do use a Windows registry, but have the SaveOnlyUpdatedKeys config setting set to N..

I install the package in the follow page
named wine-0.20030709-1.i386.rpm and have no problems!

however, they seems not work with the user root, giving the next error

[root@localhost root]# wine
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) '/root/.wine/config'.
[root@localhost root]#

but if you type the command wine as a normal user, they run fine, maybe because security reasons the wine do not create the folders needed to run in the root folder (.wine).
