Not really. Wine is a big app. Just take a look at the size of... any windows version.

If she maps it as a drive in winecfg and installs PS onto it. I don't see why it shouldn't work.

Sure, Wine can be installed anywhere. The trick is to actually install Wine there - it's not a single file, so you can't copy it. If you compile Wine on another PC, just specify:

./configure --prefix=/media/my_flash_drive/wine
make install

Then run it from there using the full path:

/media/my_flash_drive/wine/wine notepad
