[Wine]Worms Armageddon: cant open Worms Armageddon folder on fake../drive_c/Team17/Worms Armageddon

Ugh, spaces in directory names.......it's never been a good idea. :/ Not
your fault though. What is happening is the interpreter sees the space
after "Worms" and therefore assumes "Worms" is the directory you're
trying to get to. Couple of options here:

1) Rename "Worms Armageddon" to something sensible (i.e. no spaces). I
actually don't know the syntax used to address spaces, as I use Midnight
Commander (a rockin' terminal based file manager) for just about all my
file managing needs. You could use MC, or any other GUI file manager to
rename the directory.

2) Do " cd Worms* " (note the asterisk at the end). This tells the
interpreter to apply the command to all directories consisting of
"Worms" and any characters thereafter. Works fine in this application,
since there's only one directory named like that here. This isn't the
most elegant solution but it should get you around the problem.
