No, WINE (default) starts with a folder named: "Drive C".

I hate to go over the same ground again but:

1.  According to what I got from Google:


By default, the target or actual location of the My Documents folder is 
C :\Documents and Settings\ user name \My Documents, where C is the 
drive in which Windows is installed ... .

This clearly indicates that you are mistaken.  This corresponds exactly 
to what I am suggesting:


QED :-)

I don't have Windows XP so I can't check to see that it is correct.

2.  Everything put in the HOME folder is NOT hidden.

For example: CrossOver Office adds: "cxoffice", KDE adds "Desktop"

Perhaps most of it is supposed to be hidden.  Also, not every app hides 
the 'hidden' files.
