WINEPREFIX tells wine where to look for it's configureation information.
the default is a subdirectory of you home directory called ".wine".
it contains you config, registry files and some other stuff.

the generic.ppd file is one of the other stuff.  it tells wine how to print.
it should be in your .wine directory.  also if you have a ppd for your 
specific printer use that instead.

hope that helps

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of DOS,
