Yes, that is half true. But had anyone answered all questions, like: 

The reason I ask is that icewind dale on /mnt/windows/ does a 
FindFirstFileA("C:/program...") which wine translates to dosdevice/c: and 
ofcause does not find anything. Am I suppose to make a link to where the 
program is installed, as if I had installed it with wine? 

with; wine does not support running a program installed under 
/mnt/windows/ I would only had to ask once.
