    Do this:

    Code:
    ls -Ald /home/Bryan/.wine
    If it exists as a directory, try 'winecfg' again.
    If it does not exist, do this:

    Code:
    mkdir /home/Bryan/.wine
    If no error, check existance of directory and try 'winecfg' again.
    If error, post error.

    The bash script file 'wineprefixcreate' is part of Wine. It creates your ~/.wine directory and populates it with the bare bones registry files, .ini files, and executables. So run wineprefixcreate first.

    One note, however. The version that comes with the Mandriva RPM has a bug on line 62.
    datadir="$bindir/../local/share/wine"
    should be
    datadir="$bindir/../share/wine"
    I haven't gotten around to seeing if it's Mandriva-only or posting a bug report, but I had to manually modify it to get it to work.
