	Yes. Go to Desktop. You can find there at least two entries: "My 
Computer" (with all your disks) and "/". "/" is root of your unix 
file-system. Also you can go to "Z:\" - this is also root of your unix 
file-system. Wine always have Z: disk by default. You may use winecfg to 
create more disks if you wish. For example it is good idea to create disk 
that points directly to your home directory.
