What you need to find out how the Linux permission systems works and how
to set the permissions for groups, users and files. This is general
Linux knowledge, not specific to any particular distro. 

Using Wine needs more knowledge than how to click icons on the desktop,
so you have some learning to do. 

If you're a power Windows user (i.e. can use its command line and know
more than just clicking buttons and expecting things to 'just happen')
getting a copy of "Linux in a nut shell", and looking up stuff as you
need it will see you right, but the book does assume that you're up to
speed with at least one other OS and can use a command line. If this
isn't you, you're better off with a book that explains the basics:
"Linux for Dummies" is generally well regarded for a complete Linux and
OS newbie.
