Change to the directory first... (or use "wine start")
You shouldn't run Wine as root.... (Not even to install applications)
Each user should install the application into their own home
directory.... (If space is problematic, symbolic links can be used for
parts of program files afterwards, but it might break patching and any
directories linked to should be set read-only...)
The FAQ in the wiki have more information.
