In most cases the version will not make a difference. But there are 
exceptions; I have some apps that require a WinNT or later version, and 
some that require Win98 (at least this used to be true, I have not 
verified this recently).

You can specify a different version on a per app basis, in you 
~/.wine/config file with entries like:

"Windows" = "win98"
