I did it myself once and have read a lot about others doing the same.  
It's just straightforward: point Wine to where all the applications  
are. No dual installation for dual booting.

Likely a good idea.

BTW., to get a single-installation, dual-booting setup working, a  
virtual machine is the appropriate tool: VirtualBox, VMware. Getting  
a single Windows installation to boot two different hardwares is a  
bit tricky, but it works.
