OK, I understand what ./tools/wineinstall is doing now.  I'm still not
quite sure why A: and D: are not commented out if they are not found.
If the user added a floppy then it could be made available again.  For
me I get the error each time, until I indentify the paths are wrong, then
comment it out myself (or correct them). the fstab should have all the
info to create a working "config" file though I think...
