Windows 2000 doesn't create user profiles under winnt like nt 4.0 did,
instead the profiles are kept under a folder off the <root> directory,
being that i haven't played with 200 for a while i can't exactly remember
the name of the dir. (i think it something like documents and profiles)
you'll have to look around the 2000 partition a bit, but if you redirect
wine to it after you find it, that might fix your problem.
