Although it is *strongly discouraged* to run programs off a native
windows install in wine, especially if they are residing on a NTFS
partition, you be your own judge here.

Just append the appropriate line to your wine config, which is usually
$HOME/.wine/config like so:

OLD entry reads e.g.:
"Path" = "C:\\Windows;C:\\Windows\\System32;X:\\;X:\\test;Y:\\"

NEW entry should read e.g.:
"Path" =

as you can see in my case the root filesystem is configured as drive Z:
on my system. This is the default behaviour when wine is initially
configured by winesetup (The codeweavers script).
