Unfortunately, very few people here run Wine on Solaris X86. So that 
could be why there are few if any responses.

Well, ok. So have you done this? Show us what you have.

wine.conf? Well, where does that come from? And you seem to have 
neglected to include it anyway. The config file you showed a few days 
ago does not include a drive section.

You have to be careful out settings mentioned in random places on the 
web. These settings tend to change over time; Wine is still alpha software.
