This is http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425
You may be able to get at least part of what you want by following the recipe in comment #9 of that bug report, e.g.


$ sudo apt-get install smbfs
$ sudo gedit /etc/hosts (and add entry for name of windows machine 'ubuntu')
$ smbmount -L ubuntu (and verify the expected share is visible)
$ sudo mount -t smbfs //ubuntu/m-music /mnt
$ cd $HOME/.wine/dosdevices/
$ mkdir -p unc/ubuntu
$ ln -s /mnt unc/ubuntu/m-music
