Well you have to make the config file yourself but one should've been
dumped on your system when the Mandrake Wine RPM was installed.  I don't
know where that is (I've only briefly played with Mandrake dists), but you
could find out by typing: rpm -ql wine <enter> and looking for the
location where it was dumped.

Make a ~/.wine folder, copy the config file to it, then edit it with vi,
emacs or whatever.  There's help in the config file (explaining how to
configure), more help to be obtained by typing: man wine <enter> and even
more help at the website.

Alternatively, if you want an easy to configure 'Mandrake-esque' (!)
version, you could always download the Codeweavers release which does
everything for you (although it doesn't get the beer from the fridge).:(

The latest Codeweavers Wine release is available from or through a channel on Ximian Red Carpet (if
you have Ximian Gnome installed).

Good luck. :)
