It should. That was stated a long time ago. Vitamin may have assumed that you were trying to install to the NTFS partition and not the EXT3 parition.

I make no assumptions. Insure that programs are installed to Wine's C:\Program Files area when installing. I've read here of people having problems with installing programs and the cause was installation to a NTFS partition.
You should be fine at this point. Try what others and I suggested and let us know if it works.
