To continue with "How to use the wine that comes with RH7.2":

After installing wine, each user needs to create a .wine/config file.

Read 'man wine' and 'man wine.conf', and see e.g. and

Red Hat does provide an example config file, somewhere.
$ locate config | grep wine

So the first step is
$ mkdir ~/.wine
$ cp /usr/share/doc/wine-20010822/samples/config .wine

then you have to edit it to tell it where drives A and C are.

Too bad Red Hat didn't make this easier!
