Well you can't easily change defaults because some are hard-coded into Wine itself and you'll have to hack source.

What you can do is create a script that edits all what you want to edit. Some things are in registry - sound. Some things are symlinks - drives, location of "My Documents", "Desktop", etc - shell-folders.

Drives are symlinks in $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices where "x:" points to a mount point and "x::" points to device.

Shell-folders are bit more complicated. They are symlinks or real directories here: $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/$USER/
