Wine absolutely does not, not, not, require any Windows partition or
filesystem.  A Windows "drive" can be a directory in a native Linux or
other *NIX filesystem.  See <wine>/documentation/installing.sgml, the
section on installing without windows.  A little long in the tooth, but
might help.  Feel free to use this nasty little program to read the

sed -e 's/<[^<>]*>//g' -e 's/&lt;/</g' -e 's/&gt;/>/g' $1 |less -ni
