First and foremost, you should running Photoshop with this command: wine "c:\program files\adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Photoshop.exe" and not what you reference below.  Some apps are very picky in how they are run.  In this specific case, "Save for Web" will not work if you do not run Photoshop via the command above (even changing the direction of the slashes will cause a problem.)  This is described in the comments.

You're right- I wasn't reading that. And I should know better- almost
a year on linux I've learned to read as much as I can. I'll give that
a shot and see how it goes. Thanks.

It's been quite a while since I've been RTFM'ed! I deserved it.
