The config file is no logger used to for drive mapping. You need to create a 
symbolic link to it in you ~/.wine/dosdevices directory. like so:

ln -s "/mnt/dell-laptop/CDrive/" "w:"

The quotes around the "w:" are needed because of the ":". they are also needed 
if there is a space in the directory path so I show both with quotes ;)
