    I have Windows 2000 on hda1 and mounted it as "/windows". How can you configure Wine to use the DLLs in the WINNT folder?

    The Wine FAQ says
    In general, most Windows installations contain vast quantities of garbage that can confuse Wine and make it less reliable. If you can, it's best to install the programs you want into Wine's fake windows drive.
    When I used to install wine from source and run the install script, it would ask me if I wanted to use an existing install of Windows. But now that I install the RPMs, I'm not given that choice any more. The FAQ is a little dated, so I don't know if it's even still possible.

    But the clear intent of the Wine developers is that you use Wine without any real Windows DLLs. And it get's better with every release. But if there is a specific DLL you need, you can just copy it to some directory on your Wine PATH.
