Instead of moving just your drive_c, you can put your entire wine 
directory on the SD card. To do this, set the WINEPREFIX environment 

$ export WINEPREFIX=/media/label_of_sd_card

Then install your software as you would otherwise. Any manually created 
launchers should be adapted to set this environment variable as well, by 
using the command

env WINEPREFIX=/media/label_of_sd_card wine ...
