I tried it that way with copying everything under  ~/.wine/ to /wine (dosdevices, drive_c, & .reg files) that didn't work even for me. When I tried moving only drive_c and pointing c:\ with winecfg to /wine/drive_c and copying the remaining .wine to /etc/skel and every other user's folder, it worked. I did have to allow write permissions on windows/profile and windows/temp though. Everything is working good now. Thanks for your help.

Hi Joe,

Did you copy *both* the dosdevices & drive_c folders to the newly created 
/wine dir?
Does Office launch for You but no other users? Did you copy the three .reg
files as well to the /wine dir? I'm thing your launchers are not setup
right.I m almost positive.
This should work for Office 2000
Let us know.

take Care
