I thought about that too, but it's not - here is the line from my /etc/fstab
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 /mnt/dosc vfat defaults 0 0

Yes, but what about all the registry stuff that the wineinstall does? sure, I
can point to it, but Won't I damage my actual Windows? (if I use the original
windows as C:). Also, how do I copy the registery?
BTW: the wine is from today's (pulled from CVS).
