	Try this:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/program_installation_directory
wine Ruckus.exe

	Of course you should replace "program_installation_directory" with actual 
name of your installation directory where your program resides.
	Please note that this is the only correct way to run most Windows programs. 
You need to cd to the directory with the *.exe file first and then run it 
with WINE (don't provide full UNIX paths to WINE) - many Windows programs 
will fail to work if you try to run them otherwise.

	By the way, you can use TAB to auto-complete file names and paths. For 
example if you would type in the shell "cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Progr" and press 
TAB bash will auto-complete the path for you.

	Thank you for using WINE.
