You forgetting that most installers still install loads of crap on the system drive. And if they explicitly check for C: being a local disk then it's a problem with installer. And it will fail in the same way on Windows (if you can manage to put c: drive on the network).

They are disabled for a reason. If you don't know how to edit them then you shouldn't be touching them in the first place.

No, NFS/CIFS doesn't support some things that are available on local mounts. And most of those things can't be emulated by Wine. Laing to an application will get you only so far.
