Because I have a 20gb drive that Linux is installed on, and a blank
40gb mounted at /mnt/d (there is no windows installed on it).  I want
wine to install its things to my 40gb, and just for no other good
reason than the fact that I am making an example of a normal user, I
dont want to move the 40gb from /mnt/d ..  IMHO if we are going to
give the users the option to put their c drive where they want to so
easily, we should make assumptions that they will want anything
installed there to be moved if they relocate it, or we should give
them a way to setup where their c drive is located before anything is
put there, instead of assuming that they want it located at
~/.wine/drive_c ..
