    It probably wants a vfat partition so that it can write to it as well. Try configuring wine manually; there's a HOWTO on winehq.org.

    When I install wine, I don't refer it to my windows install at all. I let it create it's own in my /home directory - most commonly /home/C. I find this works best. There is more info on my guide about this.
