Strangely, I found within a few minutes of posting the email that the
problem was with the links placed within the dosdevices folder.

fake_windows.

But fixing the problem is easier said than done.  I can change to
drive_c, but i am now having trouble producing the right links within
wine.conf.

Oh well, enough said.
