The problem is my primary partition has 600 mb less free space than needed((is there anyway to install the game directly into other partition? When i get to choose where to install it i only can access other partitions through /media/disk1/... so it still thinks I'm installing on this primary partition.

There really should be a better solution to this but the quickest way
is to create a new 'fake hard drive' in wine.

winecfg -> drives -> add -> select a letter -> modify path to the
partition you want to install to -> close all wine related
applications (so settings take effect).

This new 'hard drive' will show up as the letter number you assigned
when you try to install some thing.
