system.ini (and win.ini, if you are going to ask about it later) are
found in the C:\Windows directory on Windows 98, although I'm not sure
about anything newer than that (the NT based or NT-hybrid versions, i.e.
2000 (NT 5), ME, XP, etc.). I'll check my native Win98 system when I
get a chance and see if there's an [mci] section you can attempt to copy
or look at.

They're probably emulated as builtins by wine, if they're supported at
all. If there's a fixme, then that means someone knows there's a
problem, but it hasn't been dealt with yet. Probably incomplete,
although I'm not sure if it's being actively worked on. Try asking
wine-devel about that.

Not surprised. The debian maintainer probably hasn't made the debs yet.
You can custom build your own, like I said. Besides, the Aug. release
had a completely new config system (I think).
