If the Windows installer crashed, then it's leftovers would be in your
'fake' windows drive
This is normally /home/yourUserName/.wine/drive_c
If you know Windows then you should be able to find it in there.

Linux as a rough rule uses /tmp for temporary space, but it's fairly
good about cleaning it up too.

Before you get into the habit of downloading and installing software
on linux - be sure to read

You really save yourself a lot of hassle if you stick to what's in the
repositories whenever possible, and you rarely need to go outside


All you need to know about Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty -> gconftool -s --type
bool /apps/update-notifier/auto_launch false
