Well, no.

Where do you want to have windows/ and windows/system/ directory? In / 
of the UNIX filesystem, world writeable? :)

For SuSE, I have:
	A:	/media/floppy/

	C:	%HOME/.wine/fake_windows/
	...some cd drives...

	X:	/tmp/
	Y: 	%HOME%
	Z: 	/

But this is case for endless discussion I guess.

We could just make "C:" redefineable and leave the rest as default for instance.

Ciao, Marcus
