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.

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.

earlier versions? Or is this no longer required? But how do I install
software then, if no fake drives exist?
