It makes sense to be at least a little scared. In the past running
explorer.exe (and some other programs) can have annoying consequences
(corrupting your windows drive as described in the README file) The
safest way to use wine is without windows. The biggest problem with this
method is sharing data between the two installations. If you have not
done so I would suggest that you do a backup of your windows drive if
you decide to use it in shared mode with wine.
