No. I don't want that at all. Many times I mount a loop back iso image to 
/mnt/cdrom. Wine needs to look there first because I'm wanting /mnt/cdrom to 
emulate a cd-drive in wine, not have wine look for where /dev/hdc is mounted 
and find it's not mounted at all.

In another words, I use the wine environment to emulate disks for me, 
without the need of emulation software in wine.
