ok...cool!!! but i was in ubuntu when trying to install wine, so i imagine it would have installed to the ext3 partition, rather than the NTFS, but i don't know that for a fact! so i don't understand why wine wouldn't install then to my ext3 partition...

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.
