ok...cool!!! but i was in ubuntu when trying to install wine, so i imagine it would have installed to the ext3 partition, rather than the NTFS, but i don't know that for a fact! so i don't understand why wine wouldn't install then to my ext3 partition...

I make no assumptions. Insure that programs are installed to Wine's C:\Program Files area when installing. I've read here of people having problems with installing programs and the cause was installation to a NTFS partition.
You should be fine at this point. Try what others and I suggested and let us know if it works.
all right! i'll try it...whenever, that is, i can boot into my ubuntu OS again! :x THANKS!
here's the ubuntu forum thread, where i posted my problem with booting into ubuntu:
