The default is to install to /home/CURRENT_USER/.wine so I'm wondering, as long as the LINUX users are in the same group, can I relocate the .wine dir to say, /home/share/.wine and update the wineconfig?  I just started using LINUX seriously so I'm pretty new at it.

You can try a symbolic link.
ln -s /home/share/.wine ~/.wine

Just have a try :)
