The wine user guide: an idea

First, let me apologize: I am not familiar with wine, and I didn't make
a decent research before I posted this message. I just read through the
wine user guide, and though of something that could be nice for a user
as lazy as I am. Since the introduction asked for comments, I comment.
What I would like is a section with common use cases of wine and
step-by-step instructions for each of them. It shouldn't be long - it
should be mostly links to other parts of the user guide. I think of
something like that:
CASE: I have a working windows machine, and I would like to use the
installed programs from linux. (which happens to be my situation...)
WHAT TO DO:
1. Install wine (see ...)
2. Copy all files into your home dir, for example, ~/wine/C
3. Run winecfg (see ...)
This would give the users (or at least me) a nice warm feeling that what
I want to do was already done and isn't so complicated (I hope - I
haven't tried it yet).
Have a good week,
P.S. if you reply, can you please CC me? I'm not a member of wine-devel.
