[SOLVED] limiting WINE's access

view story
linux-howto

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I recently installed WINE on Xubuntu for the first time, and was impressed/alarmed that I could execute any number of (small) programs on my NTFS partition by simply clicking them. Moreover an application installed within the WINE "c drive" is capable (as evidenced by file->open dialogs) of accessing any file to which the user has rights, not simply the virtual drive. I'd really like to have it so that no Windows app outside of the WINE folder executes, and no authorized apps can see anything outside of the folder. Is there a way to accomplish this (other than chroot)? Thanks. (HowTos)
