So anyway I deleted "Program Files, windows and C:" in the windows explorer.exe X Windows system,  I then deleted Macports  ($ sudo rm -rf /opt ~/.wine /Applications/MacPorts) and Wine.  Then I reinstalled Macport and used that to reinstall Wine.  It went through the installation for about 45minutes and was done, but when I entered "cd ~/.wine/drive_c" It told me that 'there is no such directory'  How can I fixed this?
This directory is not created until you run one of the wine utilities 
(winecfg is one) or you attempt to run either a Windows program or 

There is no need to delete the $HOME/.wine (also called ~/.wine) 
directory if you want to either upgrade or re-install Wine.

Can you provide further information on the difficulties you encounter 
when you use Wine on your Mac.  I am a fellow Mac user and there are 
several of us 'volunteers' that can help.
