I can't find directory : windows\system32 at all...
There's only : windows directory on : usr\share\include

Am I've to create system32\drivers\etc\services by manually ?
Is there something I've missed while installing rpm file ?

Best rgds,
Ari Adrianto

I was in the same case and I put fbclient.dll and gds32.dll to the 
windows\system directory of the wine directories.
Additionally, you have to add this line:

gds_db          3050/tcp

to the file windows\system32\drivers\etc\services
