Okay, clumsy keyboard use, here's the extract:

WINE REGISTRY Version 2

[Drive A]
"Type" = "floppy"
"Path" = "/mnt/floppy"
"Label" = "/mnt/floppy"
"Device" = "/dev/fd0"

[Drive C]
"Type" = "hd"
"Path" = "/mnt/windows"
"Label" = "/mnt/windows"
"FileSystem" = "win95"

[Drive D]
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"Label" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"FileSystem" = "win95"
"Device" = "/dev/hdc"

[Drive X]
"Type" = "hd"
"Path" = "/tmp"
"Label" = "Tmp Drive"
"FileSystem" = "win95"

[Drive Y]
"Type" = "network"
"Path" = "${HOME}"
"Label" = "Home"
"FileSystem" = "win95"

[Drive Z]
"Type" = "network"
"Path" = "/"
"Label" = "Root"
"FileSystem" = "win95"
