the winecfg confused me about DLL overriding.  In the 'libraries' tab,
if i specified a Dll file name and click 'Add', how does Wine know
where to load the native file when need?  does it mean i also have to
copy the native file into the "c:\windows\system[32]" directory?  if
so, why i have to bother with the winecfg, why not directlly copy
files into the "c:\windows\system[32]' and hope it will be loaded as

and, i found there are still many DLLs in the "c:\windows\system[32]"
and get much smaller size than orignial windows native files. what
does this mean?


then sun rose thinly from the sea and the old man could see the other
boats, low on the water and well in toward the shore, spread out
across the current.
