Quite easy. You'll need to set the virtual desktop to the same size as
your monitor resolution, so it will cover the entire screen.
Then put this into your ~/.fvwm/.fvwm2rc:
EdgeResistance 50 0
DeskTopSize NxM
Style Wine	StartsOnPage X Y, NoTitle
Replace N and M by whatever positive integers suit you; fvwm can handle
a few million if you want to...
X and Y count starting at 0
For example, I have N = 3, M = 2, X = 2, Y = 1
Thus, the virtual desktop will automatically be mapped to the bottom
right page.
Let me know if this doesn't work.
