Sorry for the short reply, but I hit the 'send' button way to early.

What I did was mount a .iso from CentOS and then used autodetect.  It 
was then listed as drive Q:  I opened a command session using wine 
wineconsole cmd and then did a dir,  dir /x, dir /q and finally dir /a 
(there is a hidden .diskinfo file on the image).  All displayed 
correctly.  I don't want to install CentOS onto my Mac (it won't work 
anyway) so I'm now at a loss as to what could be causing the problem 
here.  The .iso file is mounted ro however.
