No.  Wine will consider as C:\ what the Wine Administrator tells it to
consider as C:\ if that is possible.  If not it will abort.  Neither
Wine nor linux give a stuff which partition is marked active.
If you want to use a whole partition for a Wine drive (you don't have
to, C:\ can be a subdirectory in an ext2 or any other filesystem linux
can mount), put its mount point as the "Path"=.  Just do a "df" and look
at the column "Mounted on"
