    :
    Wine is something else, then Win4Lin. Wine tries to emulate all windows libraries, thus it should not need windows. But for some reasons (especially the compatibility and fact, that MS changes its specifications frequently) it need the windows directory. So what you should do, is simply install wine (from rpm, or source - but as I feel you're quite new in this matter), and try to run it something like that:
    kwant@witek: wine
    /mnt/win98 is mount point for windows partition.
    And take a look into ~/.wine/ directory. There are config files, which you will edit to specify the windows partition (you must have an windows installed), from which it takes the .dll, .ocx, .pwd and .dat files.
    If you need more help, give me your e-mail and I'll send you my confs.
