Notice that the path name got truncated at the first space. Path names
containing spaces must be treated specially to prevent the first space
from being taken as the end of the path name. There are three ways of
doing this. Take your pick. You can enclose the name on double quotes:
cd "/home/mandos/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Arquivos de programas/World of

or in single quotes: 

cd '/home/mandos/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Arquivos de programas/World of

or you can escape the spaces:

cd /home/mandos/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Arquivos\ de\ programas/World\ of\
