Drive letters are mapped in the ~/.wine/dosdevices directory. To map to
a Linux folder, create a symbolic link named "<drive_letter>:" pointing
to the desired folder. For example:
ln -s ~/guitar_tracks ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:

You could also use the Drives tab in the Wine Configuration GUI.

Hope this helps,
