I'm not at all familiar with WINE.  My guess would be because of the
name "Max Folder" with the space in it.  Try:

cd /home/Ian/
ls -l |less

Check if Max Folder shows up.  If it does, then check permissions.
When entering commands, watch the capitalization.  In Linux this
makes a big difference.
There are Bash guides in PDF format available on the internet.  I
don't remember where I got them but try FSF and Debian.
