DaVince, I think he just wants to specify a directory on a network
share for that one setting ("data file location"), not install the
program there.

> 2. If instead of selecting the local C drive as where the data files are kept, I wanted to point to a directory on another computer (e.g. Samba folder on a Linux server, or even on a Windows server), is this possible/easy? How would this be done?

First, you need to mount the network share so that it shows up in your
normal Linux filesystem.

Then, in your Windows program, you'll find it under Z:. Z:\ in Wine is
the same as / in Linux.
