Yes, every file or directory which name starts with a dot is hidden.

Hmmm, stange. Normally a new .wine - directory should be created automatically.
So, you need to create a new .wine directory manually by running

wineprefixcreate --prefix .wine

in your home-directory. (By the way... you can use this to use separate windows software installations)

Then try to run frontpage installer again.
