"Path" is where Wine looks for executables if you or a program you run
tries to launch one without a path name.  Like the shell environment
PATH=, which also confuses *nix newbies, it has nothing to do with file
operations as such.

No, but the sample config file where you found it is.  Look in
<wine>/documentation/samples/config.  <wine> of course is the directory
where you put the Wine source.  If you used an rpm or some dam' thing,
try looking around in /usr/[share]/doc/wine-*/samples/ or so.
