[Wine] /wine question

I just got wine-9.2 for fedora 4. I wiped out my ~/.wine directory to start
completely clean and installed the rpm.

I took a look inside ~/.wine and there are no fake windows/dos drives at
all. I ran wine without any arguments (checked manual, there seems to be
only version and help, tried those later), and then ran winecfg.

Still, there are no dosdevices at all. I looked in the newest documentation
and it mentions that there are links to z: -> /(root) and c: -> ../drive_c.

There are none, nor do these places exist. I then created them manually and
tried installing a program, but all kinds of other windows directories, like
Fonts, Program Files, etc, also did not exist. I tried creating them as

Then I reinstalled my software again and it all seemed to work wonderfully.
My drives whirred and all the questions were asked and I made responses and
the cd whirred some more and my hard drive was accessed or likely written to
a whole lot.

Then I took a look and there is absolutely nothing in the Program Files
directory at all. Nothing.

I repeated the proceedure yet another time and there is still nothing.

I ran updatedb and did a search for the program I had installed and it
doesn't seem to exist.

Where did it go? Where was it installed to? I know the symlinks I created
are correct.

How do I get wine-9.2 to create a fake windows system, like it used to in
earlier versions? Or is this no longer required? But how do I install
software then, if no fake drives exist?
