Hi Thomas,

I've seen this problem before.  You probably don't have a system.ini
file in your designated WINE 'c:\windows' directory.  (This is configured
in your ~/.wine/config)

Create a file in there called system.ini, and you need at least the following

You can see a sample in CVSROOT/documentation/samples/system.ini
