Right, you want to install wine into your ram disk.

You need to build wine your self fetch the source and run this:
./configure --prefix="/path/to/the/place/you/have/your/ramdisk/mounted"
before you use "make"

Then when you run wine use:
env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/the/place/you/have/your/ramdisk/mounted/myprefix" "/path/to/the/place/you/have/your/ramdisk/mounted/bin/wine" "(PROGRAM PATH)"

By the way you will need to dump your ramdisk to your hard drive before you shutdown or you lost it all. but I'm sure you new that.
