in you're HOME/.wine/config file you will need to point wine at either a 
windows partition if you already have one, or a directory (/var/lib/wine, /c, 
or /home/wine) and lie to the application about there being windows installed.

running wine without winedos is really not that bad or that hard.
there is NO need to repartition your disk.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of DOS,
and danced the skies on Linux silvered wings.
