Is this a Redhat RPM? Looking at the Redhat cdrom with
rpm -qlp /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/wine-20020327-1.i386.rpm
For an installed RPM, you should be able to see what it installed with:
rpm -qi wine
I see that the Redhat RPM does not supply windefault.reg. However, I
notice that there are the files /etc/wine.reg, /etc/wine.systemreg, and
/etc/wine.userreg. Presumably, these files contain the registry entries
in winedefault.reg, but not having used them, I can't be sure. I don't
really know what Redhat intended, but if you are using RH, try taking a
look at the files in /usr/share/doc/wine-xxxx...
By the way, you might also mention what RPM you are using.
