hey i finally figured out wat to do....

am not sure weder this s the rite way of doin t bt t works for me...
 1.Goto Wine directory  
for the .wine to exists goto applications->wine->accessories->notepad... this creates the .wine dir
cd ~/.wine
2. cd drive_c/Program\ Files/
3.create a symlink (This represents the link in windows) 
  To make links between files you need to use ln command. A symbolic link (also known as a soft link or symlink) consists of a special type of file that serves as a reference to another file or directory"
ln -s  /media/WIN XP/Program Files/lotus/
ln -s  /media/sda1/Program Files/lotus/

4. Run this command
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/lotus/notes/nlnotes.exe = ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/lotus/notes/notes.ini

it is actually working by simply wine the .exe on ntfs partition after changing some directory names in the notes files.

VERY nice!!!
