ive installed HTML-Kit as anm HTML/PHP editor and it seems to run normally under wine.
I can save files to C:\
but not to anywhere else - even /tmp which is chmodded to 777 ( which appears as F:\ in the file save menu)

m i missing something in the file permisisons ?

I've experienced that problem before and believe it's universal to all wine programs.
I think that's built-in protection of wine (sort of like a chroot) so that it overrun and destroy your system (you are running windows programs after all).

Maybe a reasonable workaround is to launch winecfg and map your home folder or whatever as another drive (like F:/).
