Sadly, I don't know if there is any yet.  Hopefully somebody else
will jump in and tell me I'm wrong!

Aha.  I think the thing to do is run winecfg,
look at the "Windows Version" pulldown list,
and change it from "Automatically detect" to "Windows 2000" or
whatever you need.  I suspect that'll change the windows
directory name appropriately.

If you can run the app ok, but it has strange problems you
can track down to one system library or another in Wine,
you canuse the "Libraries" tab in winecfg to
tell wine to use the native (Windows) version of that library.
We can help you with that when the time comes.

(And come to think of it, you can
probably use winecfg to make that symlink instead of doing it by hand;
see the "Drives" tab)

Good luck!
