Wine cannot format a partition for you, and even if it could, I don't think you'd want to do that because it would wipe out everything on that partition.

What distro are you using, and is this a dual boot system? Wine by default installs apps to the user's home directory, which should be a native Linux filesystem (usually ext3, but there are others). If you are having problems installing because the partition is ntfs, that means you either changed Wine's default drive_c to point to a different partition, or you somehow installed Linux to an ntfs partition (which I'm not sure is even possible, but it's the only other thing I can think of).
