Running Wine with Fedora Core 2

I have recently installed Wine under Fedora Core2 and it works!!
I installed a Window$ program with no problem and it works great. The trouble is I can't find it to run it again. Where would the .exe program be kept? I didn't configure wine in any way. Maybe this is a problem???

To search through your hard drive, give the following command after logging in as root
# find / -name <filetofind> -print

You can also check in the folder on your home directory. Wine stores lots of stuff there. The folder would be /home/username/.wine

If it isn't the home directory as mentioned above, have a look at the "/opt" folder. If I were you I'd install Midnight Commander (it is included in the distro under system tools, but doesn't get installed if you didn't select it). With Midnight Commander you have a very powerfull tool with which you can navigate around your system easily, search for files etc. without having to know all the command line commands etc.
