Be sure when you start the install that you do not double click on the
Install.exe, but right click and choose 'wine program loader' to run it
If that is not the problem - On my system (Fedora 11, Wine version
1.1.32) I did not copy the contents of the WoW disks to the computer and
then install from those copies. I have just put the disk in the drive
and installed from disk and I have installed as a download from my
account at the blizzard website, both ways have worked fine. My C drive
in Wine is only 56.6GB in size with WoW, both it's expansions and test
server, COH/V, SWG, EVE, and ventrillo installed so yes, your 160 GB
should be enough room.
It would take more time but unless someone else has another suggestion,
I would say delete the WoW files you have and trying an install from
disk or web and see if that cleans it up.
