OK, I'm a noob to Wine.  I've figured some stuff out with Wine and it sees everything I want it to see just fine.

OK, I understand why you don't want Wine to see your windows install, but I put all my program installs on a separate partition.  Now with this in mind can I just have Wine look at my Program Files and run my apps from there, or do I have to reinstall all the apps I want Wine to run on my Linux partition via Wine?

I'm not worried about running applications such as Office suites or Mail clients.  Everything work wise I can do in Windows I can do in Linux and I have all my data synced.  In fact I can do more with Linux than I can do in WinXP anyways, and most times better, faster, and more secure anyway.

So with that, There's only a few things I want to run in Wine, mostly older games I have hanging around since the Win95 era.  Mostly stuff that doesn't run in SCUMMVM or DOSBOX.  Such as Baldur's Gate II, Escape From Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, and other such classics.
