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