> 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).

I'm running the default version of linux on the aspire one, the Linpus distro. so i had nothing to do with installing that

with mount -v i get:

[root at localhost home]# mount -v
/dev/sda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /mnt/home type aufs (rw,si=f3e5a9c0,xino=/home/user/.aufs.xino,create=mfs,dirs=/home/user=rw)

but with cat/proc/mounts it tells me theres no  such file or folder :?
