That's an unusual way to set things up. Normally /media is only used for
removable disks. Partitions on your internal hard drives are normally
described in /etc/fstab so they'll mount automatically at boot time.

You might want to rearrange your system to work that way. Hint: by
selecting a 'Custom' disk layout the Linux installer sorts that all out
for you - you just say what partitions you want, whether to format them
and which format to use and what the mount point is to be. Once that's
done its doine and can be forgotten.

Running anything as root is a very bad idea indeed: its root kit heaven.
Running anything under Wine as root is even worse because it lets
viruses straight in. 

Do yourself a favour, set all your internal disk partitions up as I said
above and create a special games user for access to the /games
partition. And *never* do anything as root apart from sysadmin type
