Oops. I see the configuration method for the FAT partitions is no longer in 
~/.wine/config as it was in an earlier version of wine that I had used. I will 
try attaching the symbolic link m: to /home/me/MPart and see what happens. 
Please try to stop me if I'm still off base with this.

Drifting OT: My original usage of wine was the copy that came as a part of the 
SuSE 9.0 pro distro. Since then I have updated through SuSE's 9.1 pro distro to 
their 9.2 pro distro. I also have installed a couple of binary RPM packages 
from winehq for my SuSE system. I saw no warning of this change. One other 
change that I have tripped over is the wine command line has changed to no 
longer support switches for wine between "wine" and the application name.

I guess no one responded to any of my earlier posts to this list because I 
obviously had no clue as to what I was talking about. Actually, people like me 
need a pointer in the right direction sometimes. It does not do to say, "read 
the foolish manual" if I don't know where to find the foolish manual.
